Healthcare-associated infections; Influenza vaccination; Infections in solid organ transplant recipients
My current research focuses on the epidemiology and outcomes of infection with multi-drug resistant pathogens among solid-organ transplant recipients. The pathogens of focus include vancomoycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) and multi-drug resistant gram-negative organisms, including those resistant to carbapenem antibiotics.
