About Denis

Denis is a Fulbright scholar from Indonesia. He currently studies Master of Microbiology at Colorado State University. His interests are in the dengue virus’s molecular epidemiology in Indonesia, flavivirus pathogenesis, and antiviral screening of natural compounds for antivirus drug candidates. He recently joined Geiss Lab and will be studying the role of DXO and Dusp11, both are cellular enzymes that can interact with host and viral RNA. Learning the function of these two proteins can help in understanding the dynamics of flavivirus replication in host cells.
