Collapse Overview 
Collapse overview
My research program, based in Mbarara, Uganda and Durban, South Africa, is aimed at mitigating the causes of morbidity and mortality among people living with HIV in low-income countries. My projects include 1) directing clinical trials to evaluate scalable interventions to address structural barriers to care, including transportation costs and poor communication systems, 2) directing a longitudinal cohort study of aging HIV-infected persons and age and gender-matched HIV-uninfected controls to discern the epidemiology of aging in people living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa; and 3) leading an NIH and PEPFAR-funded randomized clinical trial to estimate the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of resistance testing to improve management of virologic failure in sub-Saharan Africa. In addition, I serve as the primary mentor to over a dozen medical students, medical trainees and junior faculty, and have been recognized for this work with the Harvard Medical School Young Mentor Award.
