Research Area: HCV Care Continuum

I am a clinician scientist dedicated to improving diagnosis and care for persons with Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) infection living in resource-limited settings. I have experience in meta-analysis for diagnostic test accuracy studies, statistical analysis of large databases, and decision analytics. My research focuses on screening and diagnosis of HCV infection and seeks to inform innovative and cost-effective strategies to streamline the diagnostic algorithm and increase testing capacity in resource-limited settings to improve the care continuum.
