HIV • hepatitis C • vulnerable populations • evidence-based care • evidence-based policies

Research Interests

My research focuses on designing, deploying, and evaluating evidence-based models of care that aim to increase engagement along the HIV and hepatitis C virus care cascades for vulnerable populations, with a particular focus on people in prison, women, and asylum seekers. The ultimate goal of my research is to support the development of evidence-based policies to improve population health with an emphasis on controlling and eliminating HIV and hepatitis C.
