I am a visiting researcher at the Medical Research Council (MRC) Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis.

I have a background as a medical doctor trained in general internal medicine and infectious diseases, and have been working in the Infection Control Programme of the Geneva University Hospitals (Switzerland) since 2015.

My research interests are hospital-acquired infections, in particular surgical site infections, bloodstream infections, and more recently, hospital outbreaks of SARS-CoV-2.
