    Education:

    PhD   Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Department of Pathology, 1991 - 1993



    Research Interests:

    -
    My research interests generally focus on the evaluation of new tests and instrument platforms for the diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases. Most of my current interest concerns bacterial resistance mechanisms, which have become increasingly complex and are sometimes difficult to detect in the clinical laboratory.



    Clinical Focus:

    As director of the clinical microbiology laboratory, my clinical focus primarily involves overseeing testing of specimens related to the diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases. In addition to routine bacteriology, the Microbiology Laboratory covers a wide range of disciplines inlcuding mycology, parasitology, virology and mycobacteriology. I am also responsible for overseeing the infectious disease serology testing done in the Immunology Laboratory and am involved in diagnostic testing using molecular assays. I interface with the Infectious Disease faculty and Pharmacy staff and have an active role in Infection Control and Antibiotic Subcommittee.


    Specialty Boards:

    2003 Diplomate American Board of Medical Microbiology


    2006 Diplomate - recertified American Board of Medical Microbiology
