Dr José Gabriel Niño Barreat

Research Interests

My research focuses on understanding the evolutionary history of viruses across geological timescales. We take advantage of the viral fossil record in the genomes of vertebrates to uncover their diversity and evolutionary history in deep time. I am also interested in the discovery of modern-day viruses, the diversification of ancient viral kingdoms and modelling the interactions between viruses and hosts.
