Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine, Assistant Professor in the Department of Microbiology, Immunology & Infectious Diseases (MIID), and a Member of the Infectious Diseases Research Group.

My primary research focus relates to cystic fibrosis chronic lung infection.

I currently have three main focuses to my program:

1. Understanding the natural history of a pulmonary exacerbation

2. Identifying markers to predict the successful resolution of a pulmonary exacerbation

3. Studying the pathogenesis of P. aeruginosa transmission amongst patients with CF and the impact of "the Prarie Epidemic Strain" of P. aeruginosa (a locally identified transmissible strain of P. aeruginosa) on clinical progression.

I have minor projects as well which focus on polymicrobial bacterial communities:

1. The microbial composition of invasive pyogenic infections and their relation to clinical outcomes

2. Changes in normal flora during host health and disease
