Research Description

My research interests include quantifying clinical, contextual, and geographic patterns and correlates of retention in care and other HIV Care Continuum outcomes among persons living with HIV in North, Central, and South America, and in other IeDEA regions ( Here are a few examples of my specific interests: * Application of appropriate causal inference methods to examine the impact of clinic/program-level interventions to improve retention and HIV Care Continuum outcomes (e.g., linkage to care, ART adherence, virologic suppression, etc.) * Application of spatial analysis methods to quantify geographic and temporal variation and clustering of suboptimal HIV Care Continuum outcomes * Geographic mapping of outcomes to disseminate epidemiologic data in a timely and easily digestible format (for professionals and the public)
