Research Interests

I am interested in the natural history of HIV infection. In particular, I am interested in studying the many complications seen in the aging HIV-infected population, including frailty and bone disease. My other research interests include sexually transmitted infections and Hepatitis C co-infection among HIV-infected persons.
