My research focuses broadly on optimizing HIV prevention and treatment outcomes for populations most vulnerable to or disproportionately affected by HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa, including female sex workers, serodiscordant couples, pregnant women, young women, and men who have sex with men. I am particularly interested in the evaluation of approaches and implementation strategies to improve uptake and adherence to evidence-based biomedical interventions. My training is in infectious disease epidemiology and I have technical expertise in reproductive health. I am a member of the Key Populations Program at the Center for Public Health and Human Rights.
