Description of Research Expertise:

My current research interests center on the treatment and prevention of acute and chronic pain in the primary care setting. I am also interested in the treatment and prevention of chronic viral infections (HIV, HCV, HBV) in high-risk marginalized communities (e.g., persons experiencing homelessness, immigrants, sexual minorities, IV drug users), both in the U.S. and in resource-poor countries.
