PhD Post Doc Fellow
Anjuli Wagner received her PhD in the Department of Epidemiology in December 2015. Her interests within global health include pediatric HIV, implementation science, and operations research. Her masters thesis analyzed the recruitment data from the Optimizing Pediatric HAART (OPH) study and her MPH practicum focused on evaluating waiting time at two Maternal and Child Health (MCH) clinics in Western Kenya. Anjuli’s doctoral dissertation focused on the acceptability, feasibility, and cost-effectiveness of targeted pediatric HIV testing in either a home-based or clinic-based setting in the HIV Counseling and Testing for Children at Home (CATCH) study.
As a postdoctoral fellow, she has supported a variety of pediatric and adolescent HIV testing and treatment studies, including the Developing Adolescent Strategies for HIV Testing (DASH) Study (PI: Pamela Kohler), the Financial Incentives to Increase Pediatric HIV Testing (FIT) Trial (PIs: Irene Njuguna & Jennifer Slyker), the Simulated Patient Encounters to Promote Early Detection and Engagement in HIV Care for Adolescents (SPEED) Study (PI: Pamela Kohler), and the Systems Analysis and Improvement Approach – Pediatrics (SAIA-PEDS) Study (PI: Kenneth Sherr). Anjuli is currently supported by a Fogarty Fellowship and an NIH F32 fellowship to characterize gaps in the pediatric HIV testing, treatment, and viral suppression cascade, and pilot an adapted intervention to reduce drop off. As part of this research, she is attached at the Kenyan Ministry of Health under the National AIDS and STI Control Program (NASCOP).
