Areas of Research
My primary area of interest is antimicrobial resistance. My current research activities focus on the molecular detection, characterization and pathogenicity of multidrug-resistance staphylococci, covering Staphylococcus aureus, Methicillin-Resistant S. aureus (MRSA) including hospital-associated MRSA (HA-MRSA) and the re-emerging community-associated MRSA (CA-MRSA), and coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS). I am in charge of the Centre for Antimicrobial Resistance Laboratory [a joint program by Alberta Health Services (AHS)/Calgary Laboratory Services (CLS)/University of Calgary (U of C)], and actively involved in AHS Antibiotic Resistant Organism (ARO) Program with a mandate to detect, prevent and control AROs in the region.
