I love studying viruses of all kinds (dsDNA, RNA, ssDNA viruses) and from different environments (lakes, ocean, deepsea, sediment, etc.) and hosts (microbes, zooplankton, sea-creatures, etc.). I specialize in molecular biology and bioinformatics for omics analysis. I love to develope methods for moving forward on our understanding about viruses and microbes, and their roles in following fields:


  • Environmental virology

  • Environmental microbiology

  • Host-associated microbiome
