Board Certifications

Medical and Public Health Microbiology

I am a board-certified clinical microbiologist with clinical expertise and interests in molecular diagnosis and monitoring of microbial infections in immunocomprised patients.

I am interested in the application of cutting-edge and panomic techniques in clinical and translational research for the diagnosis and monitoring of microbial infections focusing on clinical relevance and outcomes. They include development and validation of testing methods and algorithms for Clostridium difficile infections, extension and application of human papillomavirus detection and typing to clinical non-cervical specimens, and validation and optimization of bacterial culture and antimicrobial susceptibility testing automation.
