Her prior research measured the prevalence and effect of intimate partner violence on HIV care and safe-sex practices among HIV-infected crack cocaine users. Currently, she is working in collaboration with the National AIDS Research Institute in Pune, India to develop a culturally-tailored scale to measure domestic violence among married women in India.
