I am an epidemiologist with interests in how clinical and behavioral factors converge to influence health. My community-based research focuses on co-morbidities and competing risks in very low-income populations. I work with a team of multidisciplinary investigators on a research program including the “Polysubstance Use and Health Outcomes Evaluation” (PULSE). PULSE investigates the combined influences of substances (medications, illicit drugs and licit drugs), as well as HIV on the cardiac health of homeless women. The goal of the study is to provide clinical tools for risk assessment in order to reduce mortality in this population.
