Biography

I am interested in health services research focusing on Veterans with psychiatric and medical comorbidity. My specific interests include research on: the prognostic significance of comorbidity among people with HIV, the ‘clustering’ of comorbid diseases and conditions, and the treatment of chronic pain among patients with current or pre-existing substance use disorders.
