Overview

My main research interests is aging in the context of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Non-AIDS related aging outcomes of interest include cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, end-stage renal disease, cancer, liver disease, and influenza vaccination and infection. My secondary interest is in monitoring the quality of HIV cinical care in the United States using longitudinal cohort studies by assessing trends in treatment, viral load, CD4 count, and other indicators specified in the National HIV Strategy and captured in the HIV Care Continuum.

Other research interests include health disparities in special populations and epidemiologic methodology issues in causal inference of treatment effects. I investigate these topics using nested study designs in the MACS, WIHS, ALIVE and NA-ACCORD cohorts of HIV-infected and -uninfected individuals.
