research interests

My research focuses on clinical and translational investigations relating to infections in immunocompromised hosts, with a focus on disease associations, risk stratification, and diagnostic strategies for viral infections in transplant recipients. My interest in infections in immunocompromised hosts stems from my experiences as a clinician, where I witness the impact of these pathogens in vulnerable populations. I have translated this interest into clinical and translational research projects focused on investigations of risk factors for and disease associations with human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) and other viruses that affect immunocompromised patients. I am also involved in clinical trials for drug and vaccine development to treat infections in this patient population.

clinical interests

I specialize in the treatment of infectious diseases in cancer patients, solid organ transplant patients, and other immunocompromised patients with a particular interest in viral infections.
