    Collapse Overview
    I am HIV/ID physician with training in implementation science methods who uses these approaches to support pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) implementation, PrEP/HIV ART adherence, and PrEP persistence/HIV retention in care. A key tool we are using in this work is a point-of-care urine tenofovir test that can provide real-time adherence information to clinicians to drive adherence interventions. More recently, I lead projects on the intersection of the HIV and COVID-19 epidemics using epidemiological, translational, and sociobehavioral methods. Finally, I am a member of Partnership for Research in Implementation Science for Equity, a collaboration between the SF Department of Public Health and UCSF that seeks to use implementation science methods to advance equity.
