Research Interests

My research and academic interests are particularly focused on tuberculosis, global health, and clinical/translational research training (both in the U.S. and internationally). I also have an interest in healthcare epidemiology. TB and TB/HIV-related research activities are focused on clinical and translational research activities that include: transmission dynamics of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, multidrug resistant (MDR) and extensively drug resistant TB; molecular diagnostics; TB/non- communicable disease interactions; TB-related immunology (specifically the role of antigen-specific T cell responses in the control of TB which is the focus of our NIH NIAID Tuberculosis Research Unit [TBRU] grant for which I serve as dual PI); and implementation science. Global Health activities are particularly focused on tuberculosis (in Kenya, the country of Georgia, and Ethiopia) as well as clinical and translational research training in the countries of Georgia and Ethiopia
