I am an Applied Medical Anthropologist with postdoctoral training in Health Services Research. I use ethnographic methods, including interview and direct observation, to understand patient and provider behaviors and examine patients’ experiences of illness. In particular, my work focuses on patients' experiences of chronic, co-occurring conditions (comorbidities). I have worked on studies investigating patient-centered care initiatives and HIV care. My VA-funded Career Development Award uses an ethnographic approach to understand the daily life context of aging Veterans with HIV and comorbidities, with the goal of developing a patient-centered intervention.
