My clinical and research interests include the development, evaluation, and implementation of rapid infectious disease diagnostics, particularly related to molecular methodologies and MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. I am particularly interested in how the implementation of rapid diagnostic methods impacts patient care and other outcome measures. Other areas of research interest include antimicrobial resistance and multi-drug resistant infections.
