I am a physician-scientist in the Division of Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center. In addition to caring for critically ill newborns and infants in the neonatal ICU at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of New York-Presbyterian, I perform microbiology and infectious diseases research at New York University's Langone Medical Center.

My research focuses on group B streptococcus, a bacteria that causes life-threatening infections among newborns, particularly those born prematurely. I use bacterial genomic analysis to identify potential drug or vaccine targets that might help eradicate group B streptococcus.
