Bio Kavya received her Ph.D. from the University of Sydney in Australia. During her PhD, she developed and applied mass spectrometry-based approaches to study antiviral binding to influenza virus antigens and monitor the emergence of antiviral resistance. She joined the Elias lab to explore the host immune responses to viral infections.
Her current research focuses on identifying viral and host antigens that are differentially presented upon infection both in vitro and in vivo, in the context of the dynamic proteome. These studies will enable identifying immunologically relevant targets for the design of efficacious vaccines and therapeutics against a range of devastating infectious diseases such as Dengue, TB, Malaria, and Zika.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests The focus of Dr. Sweatt's ongoing research is to characterize pulmonary arterial hypertension immunophenotypes, by employing informatics-based methods to delineate peripheral blood proteomic and transcriptomic signatures. A move beyond the traditional disease classification scheme, this multimodal deep phenotyping approach has the potential to provide new mechanistic insights, help explain heterogeneity in observed clinical outcomes, and someday identify candidates for immunomodulatory therapy.
