Overview

As a pediatric hospitalist, I have clinical expertise in the acute medical management and coordination of care for children with medical complexity, including patients with tracheostomies admitted with bacterial respiratory tract infections. My long-term career goal is to become an independent clinical researcher focusing on improving evidence-based care of hospitalized children with complex conditions, particularly for pediatric patients with tracheostomies. The aims of my current research projects are to determine risk factors for development of bacterial lower respiratory tract infections in patients after initial tracheostomy placement and to document the evolution of the respiratory tract microbiome after treatment of lower respiratory tract infections in tracheostomized patients.
