Research Interests

My research interests center around issues in HIV prevention research.  These include the development and use of tools for modeling and simulation of the contact networks over which diseases spread using readily available sources of data, including surveys, clinic data, and viral genetic data.  These are valuable for modeling the potential population-level effectiveness of interventions with proven individual-level efficacy.  A related line of research applies my broad interest in causal inference to the specific issues involved in accounting for network effects that might attenuate estimated treatment effects in community randomized trials of prevention interventions.
