Infectious diseases, C. difficile infection, fungal infections, infections in transplant patients, infections in cancer patients.
My research focuses on healthcare epidemiology in transplant and oncology patients, specifically bloodstream infections and C. difficile-associated disease. I study risk factors for these infections and evaluate ways to prevent them. I also am studying risk factors and outcomes of C. difficile-associated disease at Barnes-Jewish Hospital as well as other hospitals that are members of BJC Healthcare. I hope to determine the influence antibiotic prescribing patterns and patient related factors have on the risk of developing C. difficile-associated disease in multiple healthcare settings.
