Why did you choose Einstein?
I was a medical student at Einstein and came back for ID fellowship. Einstein has a strong academic tradition that I am very proud of. I am extremely happy here and love the faculty.
What do you enjoy most about your research at the moment?
My research is centered in antimicrobial stewardship and hospital epidemiology, which is particularly important to healthcare and relevant in the national dialogue. It is a diverse field that allows for meaningful interaction with many different services. On a daily basis, I help providers in ER, surgical services, medical house staff, and PA teams select appropriate antibiotic regimens for their patients. I also lecture to different services on effective use of antibiotics and study their prescribing patterns before and after my educational outreach.
As a new faculty member, what are you looking forward to?
Rapidly evolving microbes, combined with the lack of effective new drugs, create a challenging environment for treating patients. My work is constantly changing, which I find exciting. I am looking forward to the personal growth related to making independent decisions, seeing the outcomes, and hopefully impacting patients in a positive way.
