My clinical training is in Infectious Diseases with a specific interest in HIV and my basic science interest is in the biology that underlies chronic HIV infection. HIV is an incurable disease and while antiretroviral therapy is effective at suppressive viremia, long term sequelae of inflammation account for premature aging, higher rates of cardiovascular disease, and neoplasms. My research seeks to identify novel mechanisms of HIV-associated inflammation through membrane signaling.
