Assistant Professor of Medicine, Clinician Educator


I am Assistant Professor of Medicine within the Division of Infectious Disease with a research concentration in pediatric HIV/TB and MDR-TB management. Over the past nine years I have been working with collaborators in Ukraine and the U.S. to build the Brown University Ukraine Collaboration, which focuses on strengthening research capacity in the areas of TB and HIV. I have long-standing ties to Ukraine since I participated in a Rotary Youth Exchange in 1993-94 and have since been traveling to the region for over the last twenty years. This has allowed our team to build strong collaborative relationships in Ukraine and provided me a deep cultural understanding of the complexities facing this vulnerable post-Soviet nation.
