HIV care with a special focus on Latin American patients

Research Interests

My research focuses on HIV and parasitic co-infections in Latin America, with a particular focus on opportunistic infections that affect the central nervous system such as toxoplasmosis and Chagas disease. I am broadly interested in the epidemiology and pathogenesis of parasites and neglected tropical diseases, especially those that are prevalent in the Americas. In addition to my studies in South America, I have also begun work studying diarrheal diseases in Nicaragua with Dr. Sylvia Becker-Dreps (UNC Family Medicine) and Filemon Bucardo (UNAN-León), and I hope to expand this collaboration in the future to examine the epidemiology of Chagas disease in this country. I have also expanded my work in vector-borne infections to study the emerging Zika virus epidemic in Nicaragua and Brazil.
