Areas of Interest

HIV clinical epidemiology; antiretroviral therapy outcomes; hospitalizations; substance use; comorbidities


I am a clinical epidemiologist working to improve the health of persons living with HIV. My work leverages observational studies to inform HIV care. In particular, I have experience leading studies in electronic health records-based clinical cohorts and cohort collaborations, including the UNC CFAR HIV Clinical Cohort, CFAR Network of Integrated Clinical Systems (CNICS), North American AIDS Cohort Collaboration on Research and Design (NA-ACCORD), and the Kaiser Permanente Northern California health system. My research spans ART effectiveness, health care utilization, and comorbid health conditions. This includes studies on virologic failure rates on first- and second-line ART, trends in hospitalization rates and causes, and treatment and outcomes of substance use in clinical populations. My objective is to identify areas for care improvement in the context of effective ART availability, aging of persons with HIV, and the burden of substance use and medical comorbidities such as cardiometabolic conditions.
