ABOUT ME

As long as I can remember, I wanted to be a doctor. Specifically, I wanted to be just like my own pediatrician, someone who somehow managed to make me feel better even when I had chicken pox or a broken arm. During my training, I realized that, in order to be the best pediatrician possible, I needed to learn more about how to treat and prevent infections. Consequently, I decided to do a month-long elective in pediatric infectious diseases. I was hooked! I love the combination of patient care and research that I have as a pediatric infectious diseases doctor at Duke.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research focuses on the treatment and prevention of infectious diseases in children. The majority of my research time is devoted to antimicrobial stewardship: the appropriate choice, dose, duration, and route of antibiotic therapy. I have also been involved in several vaccine clinical trials designed to prevent infections in children.
