Clinical microbiology interests include emphasis on molecular detection of infectious diseases, antibiotic stewardship, trainee education, and optimizing laboratory test utilization. Research interests include test development, especially the use of novel molecular platforms for detection of mycobacteria and other infectious diseases. Additional research interests include antibiotic treatment in the setting of biofilm formation of bacteria and fungi, as well as studying other mechanisms to identify antibiotic resistance beyond phenotypic characteristics, including novel molecular techniques.
