My interests and skills are fungal diseases, drug-resistance detection and mechanisms, surveillance, new technologies, and research and to directly apply them to the health protection and promotion of New Yorkers and communities in-large. The combination of applied and clinical work is both fascinating and rewarding. My interest is also to explore the mechanisms and prevention of white-nose syndrome, which has killed millions of hibernating bats in the US. I am happy to be part of a small and a large collaborative team to take science to the next level.
