We study the mechanisms of acquired immunity to malaria, SARS-CoV-2 and filariasis with a focus on humoral immunity.  This work involves B cell molecular immunology and development human monoclonal antibodies as therapies.  We also develop novel tools for control and elimination of lymphatic filariasis and onchocerciasis.
