Research Interests

I focus on two major, related areas of healthcare epidemiology related to multi drug resistant pathogens: 1) understanding the risk factors for, and outcomes of, infections caused these organisms, especially as it relates to antibiotic stewardship; and 2) preventing the transmission of these pathogens causing healthcare-associated infection, particularly environmental assessment and interventions.
