I am interested in investigating the intersections of HIV/AIDS and reproductive health. My current research involves investigating use of earlier ART and contraceptive and pregnancy outcomes, use of PrEP and ART for serodiscordant couples who desire children, and drug-drug interactions between ART and hormonal contraceptives. My primary mentor is Craig Cohen and I conduct my work in western Kenya.
