I am an Infectious Diseases physician and clinical researcher at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in the Vaccine and Infectious Disease and Clinical Research Divisions, and faculty member at the University of Washington. I currently serve as the Director of Infection Prevention at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. I am interested in infections and prevention, with a focus on epidemiology of major pathogens, antibiotic resistance/usage, development of novel prevention strategies and patient/provider education among immunosuppressed patient populations. My research focuses on emerging pathogens in transplantation, respiratory viruses, fungal infections, and drug resistant bacterial infections. I also have a strong interest in enhancing the discussion and promotion of science to the public, and am learning how social media can help make me a better researcher and communicator. I fully support #openscience & #FOAMed
You can also find me at Fred Hutch, UW Medicine, and at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, more specifically Here and Here.
