My early experiences in HIV research as a student and resident focused on neuropathogenesis and CNS “escape,” and served as a gateway to clinical research and translational science opportunities in HIV. My current interests include HIV persistence and compartmentalization (including in the central nervous system) and understanding individuals with unique phenotypic characteristics biologically and immunologically (such as controllers). Through my further training, I hope to develop skills around implementing interventional studies that aim to better understand HIV treatment and viral control.
