My research broadly encompasses the clinical and epidemiologic aspects of HIV/AIDS, particularly among minority and immigrant populations. Ongoing research projects include the evaluation of HIV transmission networks in North Carolina using phylogenetic reconstruction of HIV pol sequences, comparison of social recruitment and HIV transmission networks in Central America, and HIV among immigrant Latinos in North Carolina. I am also very interested in the application of phylogenetic methods in HIV prevention research and primary HIV infection, late presentation to HIV care, and early testing strategies/ linkage to care among minorities.
