I possess both an M.D. and Ph.D. (or D.Phil.), and am dual certified in Pediatrics and Pediatric Infectious Diseases by the American Board of Pediatrics. Nationally, I have served as Chairperson for the Committee on Pediatric AIDS at the American Academy of Pediatrics, and am currently on three Department of Health and Human Services Committees on HIV management. I was previously on two committees at the CDC for Pediatric HIV Surveillance and Elimination of Mother to Child Transmission of HIV. My time is divided between lab-based research and in-patient clinical care in pediatric ID. My lab is currently funded through the NIH examining how macrophages regulate immunity to HIV, CMV, Zika virus and (more recently) SARS-CoV2 infection at the maternal-fetal interface.
