Research Interests:

My research focuses primarily on describing the burden of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and encouraging the promotion of sexual health through collaboration with the Division of STD Prevention at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Teaching:

My teaching interests include epidemiology and evidence-based medicine. My goal is to provide students with a set of skills to conduct research and accurately and critically evaluate scientific evidence about disease treatment, prevention, prognosis, and etiology as presented in original research reports, in reviews and practice guidelines, and in debates of controversial issues within the medical community. I teach using examples and believe that active discussions create a foundation upon which an interest in lifelong learning is built.
