Clinical Responsibilities

I am part of the Faculty Group Practice at NYU Langone Medical Center. My work involves inpatient and outpatient consultation on solid-organ and HSCT, candidates and recipients. I am especially interested in preventive care in transplant candidates and recipients including; surveillance for multi-drug resistant organisms (MDRO), the impact of MDRO colonization on post-transplant infectious outcomes, antimicrobial stewardship, and vaccine response.
