Research Focus

My research focus is on the epidemiology of antibiotic resistant infections. I am particularly interested in how Staphylococcus aureus (SA) and antibiotic-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) are transmitted. Some individuals are colonized with SA and MRSA without symptoms while others develop severe infections. My current projects include looking at the role of companion animals in transmission of SA and MRSA and methods used to prevent transmission in the healthcare setting. I am also interested in hygiene measures which can reduce the risk of transmission such as handwashing and good oral care.

 

In order to better understand these issues, interdisciplinary collaboration is an important aspect of my work. Along with clinicians (nurses, physicians, speech therapists, etc.), I also work with veterinarians, epidemiologists, and computer/informatics specialists.
