Before becoming an epidemiologist, I worked in the design and evaluation of reproductive health programs in the United States and abroad (most recently for the U.S. Agency for International Development). My research training took place in the Mexico-U.S. border region, where I conducted fieldwork from 2008-2013 for several binational research projects on sex work, drug use, migration and HIV/STIs. After earning my PhD in Global Public Health from U.C. San Diego, I relocated to Boston, MA, for a postdoctoral fellowship the Harvard School of Public Health. I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Community Health Sciences of the Boston University School of Public Health.
