Experiences & Accomplishments
University of Wisconsin
Research interests include epidemiologic and statistical methods for cohort studies, data science, evaluation of therapies and biomarkers in observational studies, epidemiology and pathogenesis of HIV/AIDS and data management and statistical coordinating centers. For over 25 years years, I have worked primarily in HIV/AIDS with experience and scientific leadership that spans basic, clinical, epidemiological, and policy-level research. I am PI of the data center for the MACS-WIHS Collaborative Cohort Study (MWCCS), a study extending the MACS and WIHS cohorts devoted to the study of HIV-infected men and women. I am also the Epidemiology/Biostatistics Core Director for the North American AIDS Cohort Collaboration of Research and Design (NA-ACCORD), an International Epidemiologic Databases to Evaluate AIDS (IeDEA) initiative. In addition to methodological and HIV/AIDS research, I have worked on studies of HPV, substance abuse, and molecular biomarkers for liver cancer with investigators across the University.
