Clinical Interests

My clinical interests include HIV care, tropical medicine, tuberculosis (TB) management, including treatment of drug-resistant tuberculosis, and integrated palliative care for HIV-related co-morbidities.

Research Interests

My research interests broadly relate to global health equity, clinical and public health program implementation, and issues of access to HIV prevention, treatment and care for key and marginalized populations in sub-Saharan Africa. Current research interests include evaluating clinical outcomes and the operational feasibility of universal test and treat approaches to HIV care and prevention in Zambian and South African prisons, understanding post-release clinical outcomes, barriers to and facilitators of HIV care engagement for HIV-infected ex-offenders in Zambia, evaluating the effects of Xpert MTB/RIF on access to tuberculosis treatment and patient health outcomes for people living with HIV under routine programmatic conditions in Zambia, and studying novel service delivery models and maternal-infant clinical outcomes in prevention of mother to child transmission (PMTCT) programs in Malawi.
