Program of Research

My research focuses enhancing chronic disease health outcomes, particularly among people failing HIV treatment due to non-adherence. I strive to develop practical interventions that can help vulnerable and underserved individuals and communities improve their health outcomes. I have expertise in community-based participatory research and the development of strong academic-community research partnerships.
