Research Interests

My primary research interest is translational and clinical investigation of microbial therapeutics.  My current projects are focused on use of fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) to eradicate multidrug resistant organism (MDRO) colonization, use of next-generation sequencing analyses to query mechanisms of action of FMT, and leveraging population-level C. difficile and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae datasets to study risk factors and outcomes for infection with these MDROs.
