Bio

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine, Section of Infectious Diseases at the University of Chicago. I attend on the Immunocompromised Host Inpatient Consultation Service as well as attending in clinics for our HIV patient population, chronic CDI and transplant populations. I conduct clinical trials evaluating treatments for opportunistic infections in immunocompromised hosts including Clostridium difficile, invasive fungal infections, opportunistic viral infections, multidrug resistant infections and vaccines.
