To provide the most evidence-based medical care while balancing the psychosocial needs of the child and family.

Clinical Interests:

I care for a wide range of children, both healthy and medically complex, with the spectrum of infectious diseases problems in both an inpatient and outpatient setting.  

Research Interests:

My research interests include the epidemiology, management and antimicrobial susceptibility among pediatric pathogens.  I have conducted some of the first studies in a pediatric population to examine reduced susceptibility to topical antimicrobials and antiseptics used in the healthcare setting.  In addition, I have also organized and performed a number of studies to evaluate the contemporary microbiology and management practices of bone and joint infections (osteomyelitis and septic arthritis) in children.  In addition, my interests include antimicrobial pharmacokinetics and efficacy in children; we have recently conducted a number of studies re-evaluating vancomycin use in children. I have a history of mentoring undergraduate, medical and allied health students in research projects.
