Overview
My research focuses on pediatric infection control and healthcare-associated infections, as well as medical education. I was the principal investigator for a seminal randomized controlled trial demonstrating that alcohol-based hand sanitizers reduce the transmission of gastrointestinal illness in the homes of families with children in out-of-home childcare. I also conducted a randomized controlled trial that showed that hand sanitizer use and surface disinfection in elementary school classrooms can reduce student absenteeism from GI illness. I am a national expert in C. difficile infection in children; my work on CDI has included studies about risk factors, management, and attributable cost. I was a co-author on the SHEA/IDSA CDI guideline. Other areas of research interest include central-line associated bloodstream infections and antimicrobial stewardship.

I have also participated in several scholarly projects in medical education. I was the senior author for a published national survey of pediatric residency program directors to assess procedural skills training for residents. I also helped guide the development of a procedural skills curriculum for pediatric residents and was the senior author for a randomized controlled trial to assess its effectiveness in improving procedural skills. This study received the APA Ray E. Helfer Award for Innovation in Pediatric Education at the 2007 Pediatric Academic Societies’ Annual Meeting. I led a national needs assessment of healthcare epidemiology training in pediatric ID fellowships that informed the content of a widely-used online training course for ID fellows. I am also interested in educational scholarship regarding training residents about research, teaching, and leadership.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
