Research interests

I am a Senior Research Fellow (Australia's NHMRC Investigator Grant) involved in research work and supervising PhD students. I am interested in HIV care continuum, social determinants of health, and contemporary and alternative medicine. More recently, I am also interested in perilous medicine i.e. conflict and health in Africa. Currently, I am investigating the role of HIV peer counselors on testing uptake, treatment linkage and retention, and perilous medicine in Tigray. I apply quantitative methods including cross-sectional, cohort, and cluster randomized trial studies. I also apply systematic review and metanalysis, qualitative methods including in-depth interviews, and consensus methods such as nominal group technique analyzed using non-parametric analysis. I use R, SPSS, NVivio, RevMan, and Covidence softwares.
