    My research focuses on HIV and cognition. My main project is an interventional study on HIV cognition in the aging population; participants enroll in an 8-week mindfulness-based stressed reduction course and are assessed for changes in domains of cognition, such as attention and executive functioning, and stressors of the mind, such as stress and anxiety. Additional projects focus on the link between gut microbial translocation due to HIV infection and cognition.

    Previous research at UCSF was with the divisions of nephrology and pulmonary and critical care focusing on utilizing novel biomarkers to predict acute kidney and lung injury in critically ill patients. Since then, I have enrolled in medical school at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School where I have narrowed my focus to infectious diseases, medical education, and LGBTQ health. I am a visiting student scholar for the 2015-2016 academic year and will return to Rutgers thereafter for my final year of medical school.
