Research Summary

Accurate prediction of seasonal influenza evolution depends on a comprehensive integration of biologically relevant viral characteristics. My research seeks to integrate influenza genome sequences, experimental assays, and patterns of geographic distribution into a novel unified predictive model. The predictions from this model will directly inform vaccine strain recommendations made to the CDC and WHO for all four seasonal influenza subtypes.
