    Collapse Overview
    I am a Senior Research Scientist at the San Francisco Department of Public Health and an Associate Professor at the University of California, San Francisco Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. I am one of a small number of researchers whose expertise is research with the trans community. Current studies include implementation science projects geared toward stigma reduction to improve HIV prevention and care outcomes among trans women in the U.S., Nepal and Brazil. I also dedicate a significant portion of my time to mentoring the next generation of scholars focused on reducing health disparities in HIV. I am also the President of the Board of Directors for TAJA’s coalition, whose mission is to end the genocide of trans women of color.
