Research Interests

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.
