-Associate Professor of Pharmacy at the UConn School of Pharmacy
-Adjunct Associate Professor of Medicine at the UConn School of Medicine
My clinical practice and research activities are located at UConn Health John Dempsey Hospital in Farmington, CT.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, I have served as an expert advisor within the UConn community for a variety of initiatives. I am a member of the UConn Health John Dempsey Hospital COVID-19 “Think Tank” Committee, serve as its COVID-19 pharmacotherapy expert, and play a primary role in the development and maintenance of its COVID-19 Treatment Guidance Document. I am a member of a Committee/Working Group for the use of COVID-19 Monoclonal Antibodies and COVID-19 Vaccines at UConn Health. Early in the pandemic, I developed/delivered presentations for UConn’s “COVID-19 Pandemic: Impacts on Health, Business, and Society” online course, which was offered for the education of UConn Students, Faculty, Staff, and university Alumni.
My other practice and research activities include: (1) the development of antimicrobial stewardship initiatives and the evaluation of their impact on patient care, and (2) clinical and laboratory investigations of gram-positive and gram-negative bacterial resistance.
