Research Focus

My research focuses on conducting randomized clinical trials designed to improve the treatment of infectious diseases (e.g., C. difficile, COVID-19, S. aureus, Gram-Negative infections) and to innovate in the domains of care of complex hospitalized patients, care of older adults with polypharmacy, and stewardship of healthcare resources (e.g., testing, medications).
