Research synopsis: 

Infectious disease is my area of interest and I am currently a Fellow of the Department of Geographic Medicine and Infectious Disease at Tufts Medical Center. Under this wide umbrella, my main focus lies in fungal infections, the pathology of it as well as how to apply it to clinical use. During my short tenure as an Infectious Disease and Internal Medicine physician, I have seen multiple fungal infections from candida to mucor and it always fascinates me how the largest of the pathologic agents can cause such damage to a complex organism.
