I am a specialist in pulmonary and critical care medicine with an interest in lung diseases that result from immune-suppressing cancer treatments. My research focuses on how the microorganisms that normally inhabit the body contribute to infectious diseases and other respiratory complications following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
