Kwonil is currently working as a Research Scientist at the Center for Food Animal Health, College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University. He mainly works with food animals (particularly, swine) for the study of the pathogenesis and immunity to viruses, as currently focused on swine enteric or respiratory coronaviruses as surrogates of SARS-CoV-2. His research is focused on elucidating the host and viral factors and intervention strategies that contribute to enhanced or reduced infection with enteric or respiratory coronaviruses, such as porcine respiratory coronavirus, porcine epidemic diarrhea virus, and porcine deltacoronavirus, or caliciviruses, such as human norovirus, in germ-free or conventional pig models.
