  • I did my doctoral thesis [1] on factors associated with HIV susceptibility in
    the female in the female genital tract. We studied how female sex hormones,
    seminal plasma and living in an HIV-serodiscordant relationship affect the
    female genital mucosa. My current research is focused on how female sex
    hormones, both endogenous and exogenous such as when using hormonal
    contraceptives, as well as the genital microflora affects the genital mucosa.
    Hopefully, this knowledge can aid in developing preventative measures to
    decrease the spread of HIV, such as vaccines or microbicides, as well as
    contributing to the development of safe hormonal contraceptives.
