Research Interests

I am a psychologist and senior research officer in the Department of Psychiatry and Mental Health at the University of Cape Town. The majority of my research has been devoted to developing and implementing mental health interventions in diverse settings. My research focuses on the intersection of mental illness and chronic conditions, with specific focus on HIV and behavioural adherence. I have provided academic oversight and managed several interventions focusing on HIV, substance use, sexual trauma, sexual and reproductive health, and community-based healthcare. I am currently the project director of Project Someleze, a R01 (NIMH) funded coping intervention for HIV-infected women with histories of sexual trauma.
