Allison uses a combination of molecular biology and computational methods to analyze virus dynamics and the host response to viral infection. Her recent work focuses on identifying, quantifying, and analyzing minority variants in intrahost viral populations and studying the dynamics of these variants over time, both within a single host and across populations. Current studies are centered around SARS-CoV-2 as well as Influenza A and B viruses.
