Biography

I am a US board-certified infectious diseases specialist, internist, and pediatrician with extensive clinical, research, and public health experience with a focus on HIV and TB in Africa. My primary career goal is to improve health and health systems for underserved populations through research, clinical care, education, and project implementation. My research interests are to better understand the epidemiology of TB and other infectious diseases in resource-limited settings and identify interventions to address them.
