Research interests:

1. Understanding how oncogenic viruses establish themselves in cells to cause cancers using live-cell imaging for uncovering the potential therapeutic targets to eliminate viral genomes and thereby eradicate its oncogenic gene products from infected cells.

2. Understanding the pathogenesis of influenza virus and Enterovirus with live-cells imaging
