Extensive Research Description

I am interested in health services research focusing on Veterans with HIV infection and psychiatric comorbidity. My specific interests include research on: the prognostic significance of psychiatric and substance abuse 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.
