      Collapse Overview 
      Collapse Overview
      I am an infectious disease epidemiologist with a focus on tuberculosis (TB), TB/HIV, global health, and implementation research. My current work focuses on public health interventions for intensified tuberculosis case finding in high-burden settings.

      I serve as a regular consultant for the American Thoracic Society (ATS), World Health Organization (WHO), and the Dutch Tuberculosis Group (KNCV), and serve on WHO Steering Committees to develop new policies related to tuberculosis case finding and tuberculosis international standards of care (ISTC). I am an affiliated faculty of UCSF Global Health Sciences as well as the Curry International Tuberculosis Center.
