I am an associate professor in the Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health and in the Division of Infectious Diseases of the Faculty of Medicine at McGill University and an investigator at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre.

I do public health research on sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBI) such as HIV and HCV. Using quantitative methods, I aim to understand risks for STBBIs and poor health outcomes among vulnerable populations (men who have sex with men, people with substance use disorders, incarcerated persons). Using implementation science, I am also interested in evaluating STBBI-related prevention and care interventions.

 I am also one of the Principal Investigators on the Canadian Engage Study, a cohort study examining the uptake and impact of antiretroviral-based HIV prevention on HIV and STI occurrence among gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men, in Montreal, Vancouver, and Toronto. In these and past works, identifying clues for intervention to mitigate risk and poor health outcomes, has been the focus.
