My research focuses on uncovering fundamental molecular mechanisms of virus translocation across biological membranes, in the distinct contexts of enveloped-virus membrane fusion and nonenveloped-virus membrane penetration. I apply and develop advanced biophysical and biochemical approaches and combine them with those of virology, molecular biology and cell biology.
