About

My main goals in my current career are providing excellent patient care and working to improve that care through quality improvement programs. In conjunction with multiple collaborators, areas of QI research that I am actively involved in at this point include removing inappropriate penicillin allergy labels, improving treatment of infusion reactions by infusion nurses and improving vaccination rates in immunocompromised patients through provider education. Additionally, I have an interest in the off target effects of immunosuppressive biologics and new small molecule drugs (such as JAK inhibitors) that may cause immune defects in the course of therapy.
