The main research interest is the management of invasive fungal diseases. Topics of interest include the diagnosis of invasive mycoses by non-cultured based methods such as biological markers and fungal DNA. The emergence of azole resistance in Aspergillus is another topic of interest which addresses the origin and epidemiology of resistance, and clinical management. Third topic is efficacy of antifungal agents in relation to pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic parameters using experimental models of fungal infection.
