My background is in the study of metabolic consequences of HCV and HIV infection, particularly insulin resistance, lipodystrophy, and hepatic steatosis in men and women. Specifically, I am investigating the relationship of visceral adiposity, HIV, HCV and its metabolic and inflammatory consequences on hepatic steatosis and its progression. As part of this work, I am also investigating the use of non-invasive techniques to estimate steatosis and fibrosis including magnetic resonance spectroscopy and transient elastography. My research is conducted in the setting of observational cohort studies such as the Women’s Interagency HIV Study (WIHS), a multi-site prospective study that investigates the progression of HIV in women and the Study of Fat Redistribution and Metabolic Change in HIV infection (FRAM).
