Research interests
My main area of research to date examines infection control practices for needleless vascular access devices with focus on vulnerable patient groups such as cancer therapy recipients. I have a developing track record and international reputation in this field with 11 peer reviewed publications, four as first author, and seven conference abstracts, two as invited speaker. I have also contributed to successful research grant submissions totalling over $500,000.00 and have been awarded scholarships to support my PhD studies worth over $100,000.
