Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Since 2010 I have re-focused my research interests in clinical research studies in the general field of healthcare associated infections. One current research project includes a prospective clinical research study of the epidemiology of Clostridium difficile in immunocompromised patients using whole genome sequencing, spatial mapping, and clinical risk factor assessment.
