I've been working on the prevention and treatment of HIV and tuberculosis infection in the setting of socioeconomic disparities since 1999. My current projects focus on the development of training materials for MDR-TB clinicians in resource limited settings. I also conduct research on TB diagnostics and MDR-TB treatment regimens.
