Overview

My research interests include childhood infections in resource-limited settings. My primary research is on the care and treatment of HIV-infected children. I am currently working in Zambia evaluating the effectiveness of pediatric antiretroviral treatment and determining whether differences exist between urban and rural areas. I am also interested in the barriers to care and treatment in a rural setting, how different models of health care delivery affect treatment outcomes, and how to improve access to early infant diagnosis. 


I am also involved in projects on malaria in rural Zambia, HIV/HCV coinfection in Baltimore, and a PCV impact study in Bangladesh.
