Luis received his PhD in Virology from UCL in 2009, developing non-integrating lentiviral vectors for gene therapy under the supervision of Professor Mary Collins and Professor Adrian Thrasher. He then moved to the Malim lab, where he studied mechanisms of action of innate inhibitors and dependency factors of HIV-1.

In 2020, Luis was appointed Lecturer in the Department of Infectious Diseases. His current research interests include the study of host-pathogen interactions as well as the development of viral vectors for applications in cell and gene therapy.
