Biography

I have committed my career to understanding the mechanisms and epidemiology of antimicrobial resistance and have decided to pursue this high-quality clinical and translational research. A commonly used measure to control multi-drug resistant organisms involves identifying patients already colonized and preemptively treating them in efforts to decolonize them; the long-term consequences of such policies are unclear from available studies.  My recent research has largely focused on the diminished susceptibility of Staphylococcus aureus to topical antimicrobial agents including mupirocin and retapamulin as well as chlorhexidine and other antiseptics.  My other areas of research interest include the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal infection and optimal dosing/serum concentrations of vancomycin in children.
