She is an alumna of Johns Hopkins University and Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where she received the AMWA Glasgow-Rubin Achievement Award and AOA.

She returned to Einstein/Montefiore for fellowship in infectious diseases then stayed on as faculty. As medical director of stewardship, Dr. Nori oversees operations at all Moses, Weiler, Wakefield, and ambulatory sites. Her primary focus is on medical education in ASP, Infection Prevention, and Emerging Infections. She leads ASP and ID educational initiatives throughout the health system and has pioneered programs to improve antibiotic prescribing at all levels. Her work on original decision-support tools and smartphone apps has been published and presented at IDSA and SHEA national meetings. With her microbiology colleagues, Dr. Nori has also published on the use of novel diagnostic technology for rapid microbe identification. She also serves on the IDSA Subcommittee for Antimicrobial Stewardship Curricula, the CDC/SHEA Outbreak Response Training Program Education Committee, and the SHEA Antimicrobial Stewardship Committee. In 2015, Dr. Nori also helped pioneer the Montefiore OPAT (outpatient parenteral therapy) program with Dr. Theresa Madaline, utilizing a transitional care model for patients discharged on extended IV antibiotics. The program observed a significant reduction in 30-day all-cause readmissions within the first year and has expanded rapidly to fit the needs of the multifaceted Bronx population.
