She completed a K23 career development award studying immune activation during pregnancy and contraception in HIV-infected Kenyan women, and currently holds two National Institutes of Health grants studying contraception and the vaginal microbiome, and sexually transmitted infection acquisition in Kenyan adolescent girls.
