My interests lie in public health, with an especial focus on primary prevention of infectious diseases or early detection of non-communicable diseases to improve population health. I have been PI or Co-I on multiple NIH, CDC, and other funded grants. My research focus has been on primary prevention of infectious diseases or early detection of non-communicable diseases.

My recent work has immersed me in detailing the drivers of health behavior and puzzling out how we can improve behavior change strategies. I co-developed the Integrated Behavioral Model and its use in research to explore behavior change. Via this focus, I have designed implemented and evaluated intervention programs that motivate healthy behavior to prevent disease. I have worked on locally, regionally, nationally and internationally, with specific experience in global health in Africa. I also have experience in One Health (the intersection of animal to human diseases).

I have broad and in-depth experience in evaluating disease reporting and surveillance programs, clinical and public health services programs, health education strategies/programs, health behavior change interventions, and training programs. My evaluation approach is to determine how programs can be improved or strengthened to have higher positive impacts on improving health of individuals and communities. I have worked in Zimbabwe (16 years), Tanzania, and Georgia (Eastern Europe).
