Research Interests

Dr. Vazquez Guillamet's focus has been bringing new mathematical and statistical methods to the study of infections in critically ill patients. She has been interested in infections caused by multidrug-resistant microbes, their epidemiology, treatment and impact. Her research aims to better predict and understand who’s at risk for developing an infection caused by multidrug resistant microbes. Our current subjective approach has lead to both underrecognizing sepsis and also overtreating for MDR pathogens. More so, current prediction models have failed the external validation. She is striving to correct that and develop tools that classify patients at risk and that are easy to understand, apply and extrapolate.
