View my most recent research

My research addresses the clinical, operational and economic impacts of competing Infection Control strategies for important nosocomial pathogens such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). This involves hospital-based clinical studies, national survey-research, as well as “dry-bench” studies using computer-based simulation modeling. Our team collaborates with colleagues with expertise in computer science and articificial intelligence on risk prediction related to hospital acquired infections.  I also collaborate with colleagues on research and implementation of antibiotic allergy evaluations.
