Previous overseas work experience includes a summer position at the Naval Medical Research Institute Detachment in Lima, Peru.  My work in Peru focused on seroepidemiological studies of a novel Alphavirus, named Trocara, isolated in the Amazon River Basin.

Our research paper, describing Trocara virus, has been accepted for publication in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
