I oversee all of the operations at the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health which services the entire University and seeks to promote interdisciplinarity in global health. My work and research aims to improve the capacity of academic institutions to support global health training across the continuum of education. Areas of focus include 1) developing successful field training experiences, 2) improving and informing mentorship practices in global health, 3) building capacity with partner institutions, and 4) integrating disciplines.

Current projects include:

1) Implementation science approaches to lessons learned in polio eradication

2) Promoting successful student integration into overseas training sites

3) Bioethical challenges associated with long-term global health training experiences

4) Evaluation of interdisciplinary global health training programs

5) Capacity strengthening in HIV operations research
