I am a biostatistician working on large HIV observational databases (TAHOD, TAHOD-LITE, TAHOD-CC, SRN-AP, and TB-SRN). I am currently a Research Fellow at the Biostatistics and Databases Program. I have experience in analyzing multi-regional epidemiological datasets and prior experience working on genetic-linkage studies. My research interests and experience include observational cohorts in HIV, liver, and diabetes. 
I am also a coordinator and mentor of the Fogarty-IeDEA Mentorship Program (FIMP). I have supervised candidates in this program from concept development to manuscript stage.

My research focuses on liver-related outcomes and its associated risk factors among people living with HIV (PLWH) in Asia. I am also interested in diabetes-related outcomes and genetic-linkage studies.

More recently, I have been involved in the development of an Australian HIV Observational database (AHOD) sub-study focusing on the quality of life among PLWH who are virologically suppressed.
