My research interests relate to understanding how protective immune responses are generated against viral diseases, with focuses on: the impact and mechanisms of unconventional T cell responses (e.g. non-classical MHC restriction, non-canonical open reading frames, and other unconventional epitopes), elucidating the interactions between CD4 T cells, CD8 T cells, and B cell responses to protect from viral illnesses, mechanisms of mRNA vaccine immunogenicity, and testing the immunogenicity of various mRNA vaccine designs in different animal species.
