Clinical Interests
My clinical interests intersect my research interests in patient safety. I am most interested in the prevention of hospital-acquired conditions and hospital-associated complications. I have deep knowledge in the prevention and treatment of bloodstream infections, catheter-associated complications and venous thromboembolism.

Care Philosophy
I believe that no patient in the hospital should receive care that is fragmented, inefficient or non evidence-based. I strive to ensure patients receive compassionate, centered care at their time of greatest need.
