About Me

My career has encompassed diverse areas within infectious diseases, and has integrated clinical work, research, education, and scholarship. Coupled with the care of patients with general infectious diseases processes, viral hepatitis, or HIV, I have developed numerous research and scholarly projects, as well as taught and mentored medical trainees. I also developed the Outpatient Parenteral Antimicrobial Therapy program, served as its first director, and completed quality improvement projects.

Honoring my contributions as educator, researcher and mentor, I have received several institutional awards over the years. My research and scholarship have had a special emphasis on viral hepatitis.  I am the author of more than 100 peer-reviewed articles, several book chapters, as well as numerous abstracts and presentations reflecting my contribution to the field. My expertise led to the participation in national and international conferences, committees, and panels, as well as to the peer-review of numerous manuscripts for medical journals. I served on the NIH-CDC-HIVMA/IDSA Opportunistic Infections guidelines Hepatitis B Subject Group, and on the Infectious Disease Society of America Standards and Practice Guidelines. I currently serve on the AASLD Hepatitis B Special Interest Groups Education Subcommittee and the Clinical Infectious Diseases Editorial Advisory Board.
