Graduate Student, Psychology (Affiliate)
Before arriving at UConn, I worked at Fenway Health in Boston where I developed a strong background in HIV research with a specific focus on medication adherence and transmission prevention. Currently I am a T32 HIV/AIDS Training Grant fellow focusing on safer sex barriers that MSM experience and put them at risk for HIV transmission.
