Research

My primary research focus is the use of epidemiologic methods to achieve two complementary patient safety goals: i) prevention of antimicrobial resistance through appropriate antimicrobial use, and ii) surveillance and prevention of multidrug resistant infections. I have expertise in the evaluation of the impact of healthcare interventions, and epidemiologic analysis of large repositories of electronic health record data.
