I am an Infectious Diseases physician with an interest in mycobacterial diseases. I am drawn to the challenge of diagnosing and caring for patients with infectious diseases, and tuberculosis (TB) and nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) disease are at the pinnacle of this challenge.
More research is needed to improve diagnostics and therapeutics for TB and, especially, NTM disease given its comparatively limited treatment and evidence-based management options. Thus, I have found my next mission in this frontier: to improve our understanding of NTM and care of patients with NTM diseases through clinical and epidemiological research.
