Research Interests

Dr. Khosropour’s work involves both research and applied epidemiology in the field of HIV and STI prevention. Her research focuses on behavioral risks for HIV and STI infection, the epidemiology of rectal chlamydia among men and women, and the implementation of PrEP and HIV care engagement programs in the Southern US. Since 2015, Dr. Khosropour has worked with over 20 state and local health departments – most located in the Southeastern US – to provide expertise and guidance on the implementation and evaluation of HIV/STI public health programs. She is also core faculty in the Implementation Science Core of the UW/Fred Hutch Center for AIDS Research (CFAR).
