My work thus far has focused on the role of patient transfers in the healthcare networks of France on the spread of hospital-acquired infections and specifically carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae. My colleagues and I have employed social network analysis techniques, mathematical modeling, and statistical methods in order to address these objectives.
