I am an HIV prevention researcher with doctoral training in clinical epidemiology and an expanded methodological toolkit that incorporates implementation science, behavioral science, and qualitative research. I lead numerous research projects that address consequential questions about HIV prevention during all stages of reproductive desires with close collaborations in Uganda, Kenya, and South Africa. After 14 years with the University of Washington, I became Professor of Medicine and Director of the Center for AIDS Research at the University of Alabama Birmingham in 2022.
