I am a physician with special expertise in the management of infections in patients with weakened immune systems.

     

My research interests focus on identifying the factors in these patients that predispose them to developing opportunistic viral infections after cancer treatment. I am also interested in studying the interactions between host, bacteria, virus, and gut microbiota. I am currently involved in various research projects including rapid identification of adenovirus types, investigation of risk factors for adenovirus infections, and gut microbiota in stem cell transplant recipients.
