Clinical Interests
My clinical interests focus on the multitude of infections in the immunocompromised and transplant population, inclusive of solid organ transplant recipients, hematopoietic cell recipients, and patients with liquid malignancies undergoing treatment.

Care Philosophy
As a transplant infectious diseases doctor, I strongly believe in approaching the care of each of my patients in a multidisciplinary manner. By teaming up with my patients' primary oncologist, bone marrow doctor, or transplant surgeon, not only do we provide excellent care, but we always do so with the patient at the center of attention and ensure we are all on the same page. The complexities of our patients' illnesses mandates this approach, allowing us to constantly collaborate, learn from one another, and be fully informed.

Personal Interests
I enjoy weight lifting, working out, reading novels, exploring new towns, and exploring nature. I also love to travel back to Greece at least once a year to visit my family.
