Research Summary

My research interests lie in the area of infectious diseases, particularly those related to child day care. Other interests are in studying infectious diseases which can be transmitted to day care providers and parents of children in daycare, specifically cytomegalovirus which is capable of causing congenital infection of the fetus.
