For the past 20 years, I have had a professional interest in the mental health aspects of the HIV epidemic. I have been interested both in understanding the mental health consequences of HIV infection as well as in bringing a mental health perspective to the critical task of preventing the sexual transmission of HIV. In addition, as an administrator and the Director of the UCSF Alliance Health Project, the largest HIV and mental health services organization in San Francisco, I have an ongoing interest in service delivery and program evaluation.

I am a proud graduate of the UCSF PPF, where I worked in an integrated primary care clinic for patients with high rates of housing insecurity and co-occuring substance use disorders. My fellowship project examined referrals from primary care to specialty mental health clinics to identify breakdowns in this process and advocate for changes to improve linkage to needed services.
