Department of Infectious Diseases
Graduate Student, Mousa Lab
I attended UGA as an undergraduate, earning a B.S. in Microbiology with a minor in Music. As an undergraduate, I worked under Dr. Biao He to study RNA editing and F-HN protein interactions in mumps virus. I stayed at UGA for its Infectious Diseases PhD program, where I am researching antibody responses to a next-generation influenza vaccine called COBRA (computationally optimized broadly reactive antigen) using in vivo, in vitro, and structural techniques in Dr. Jarrod Mousa’s lab. My goal after graduating from the program is to pursue a career in vaccine development with an emphasis on structural vaccinology for viral pathogens.
