Laura is interested in developing cheap, simple and effective diagnostic tools for plant and animal diseases. Her research interests also include discovery of new viruses and virus evolution. She hopes to provide visiting scientists at the BecA-Hub and ILRI at large with good training and advice in the field of molecular biology and virology.

We are excited to have her as a member of the BecA-ILRI Hub team.
