I completed residency in Internal Medicine and fellowship in Infectious Diseases in the Department of Medicine, Emory University, as well as a Masters in Clinical Research. I pursued post-graduate training in an ACGME-accredited Medical Microbiology fellowship. I am a Medical Director of the Microbiology section for Emory Medical Laboratories at Emory Healthcare, as well as program director of the Medical Microbiology fellowship. I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and the Division of Infectious Diseases and serve as the associate chief medical officer of Emory University hospital. I round on the inpatient infectious diseases consult service so to link clinical microbiology to the bedside. My research interests are in next-generation sequencing, microbiome therapeutics, and healthcare innovation factors. I am very passionate about mentorship of trainees and training the next generation. I believe that creativity and innovation in federal policy can bring about lasting positive change in science.
