Professor of Pediatrics

Washington University in St. Louis (WU)

I am a Pediatric Infectious Diseases Specialist with a research interest in antibiotic-resistant organisms, specifically community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA). My investigations involve the epidemiology, microbial virulence mechanisms, and host defenses against CA-MRSA infection and colonization and methods to prevent transmission of this organism.
