I specialize in social science and interventions research focused on barriers to HIV services utilization among men in sub-Saharan Africa. I am especially interested in institutional- and community-level barriers to care experienced by men, and interventions to address these barriers. I am based in Malawi with Partners in Hope (local NGO) where I lead several qualitative studies and randomized controlled trials focused on men’s engagement in HIV services.
