About

After a fruitful PhD in the Kent laboratory at Melbourne University working on the pigtail macaque model for HIV vaccines, I moved to Zurich to study HIV pathogenesis in humans. I am passionate about the ultimate social benefit of basic research into human disease, and advocate clear scientific communication.
