Introduction

My specialty is on molecular virology, biochemistry and vector biology. From 2006, I have performed my research in collaboration with international scientific groups on interdisciplinary research fields, specifically in Turkey and The Netherlands. I obtained my PhD degree at 2012 from Wageningen University, The Netherlands on functional genomics of a model invertebrate iridovirus using well established Drosophila model system. I have a keen interest to be at the frontier of genomic research on the pathobiology of human viruses especially on vector transmitted diseases. So far my research activites are focused on infectomics (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics) and interactomics (system biology) of viral infections. I worked on temporal classification and mapping of viral transcripts as well as temporal proteomics in unique viral-host models to understand global pattern of virus infection (infectomics) using Human, Tsetse and Drosophila model systems. With this regard, I have implemented an experimental Drosophila fly and Human cell culture model systems for a quantitative temporal proteomic approach; to identify proteins and pathways regulated in the host by viral infection e.g. immune response.
The main focus of my transcriptoproteomic studies is to identify essential host cell factors in virus infection to contribute to the development of novel intervention strategies for viral infections.
Currently, I am focusing to implement in silico approaches to delineate the complexity of microbiome-host interaction and unravel their impact on the microbial pathogenesis to provide the scientific basis for the development of novel bio-strategies and designing of bio-processes of products of a wide spectrum of interest in bio-industry.
Research interests : Microbiology, Virology, epigenetics, host-microbiome interactions
