Currently pursuing research project on enteroviruses, dengue and respiratory tract infection in children. Areas of interest include molecular diagnostic, viral-host interaction and molecular epidemiology.

Previously, I have been involved in projects associated with the epidemiology and surveillance of infectious diseases that are endemic in Sarawak such as hand-foot-mouth disease (enteroviruses) and CNS-related viral diseases.

My primary interest lies in the areas of viral infection and detection. These include the study of viral infection pathway by way of looking at viral-host protein-protein interaction, development of new diagnostic assay and recombinant antigen and antibody development.
