I am a computational epidemiologist and statistician at the Chicago Center for HIV Elimination (CCHE) in the Department of Medicine at the University of Chicago.
I direct a multidisciplinary team that develops biosocial network models to inform policies to increase population health equity. My substantive research is in reducing HIV/STI incidence in sexual and gender minority communities, and increasing breast cancer screening among African American women. I use a combination of agent-based modeling, network analysis, and predictive methods, and I disseminate research results across academic, governmental and community-based stakeholders.
