PhD student in Virology at the Nelson R. Mandela School of Medicine, University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. My research interests are in understanding levels of primary HIV-1 drug resistant minority variants and their impact on antiretroviral treatment (ART). I would specifically want to determine how drug resistant minority variants detected using next generation sequencing platforms can be used to inform use of antiretroviral drugs in clinical practice, when initiating patients on ART. I am also interested in the use of bioinformatics for large scale data analysis in the field of molecular biology.
