Research Summary

As a member of the Infection Prevention and Control Department, I am interested in investigating strategies to prevent bone and joint infections, including surgical site infections and prosthetic joint infections.


I am also interested in investigating advanced diagnostics for bone and joint infections, in particular for "culture negative" infections.


I have been and continue to be involved in studies related to caring for those with chronic HBV and HCV infections.

Research Interests

Bone and joint infections, Hepatitis B and C.
