I am Assistant Professor in the Department of Global Health. My research expertise are in the epidemiology of HIV in low- and middle-income countries. I am shifting my research interests to non-communicable chronic diseases in low- and middle-income countries. I have a fundamental commitment to the development and mentoring of young researchers in the field of epidemiology. I believe that mentoring is important, not only because of the knowledge and skills students can learn from mentors, but because mentoring provides professional socialization and personal support to facilitate success in graduate school and beyond. As such, I have shown good citizenship and service by mentoring BUSPH MPH students, fellows and PhD students through practicum, research projects and dissertations over the course of their educational career. My hope is that interaction with mentees will greatly enhance their chances for success, as research shows that students who experience good mentoring also have a greater chance of securing academic track positions, or greater career advancement potential in administration or sectors outside the university.
