Lindsey Filiatreau, PhD, MPH

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Lindsey recently completed her PhD in Epidemiology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with an interest in global mental health and HIV prevention and care.  In her dissertation work, Lindsey characterized differences in longitudinal HIV care continuum outcomes before and after implementation of South Africa’s Universal Test and Treat policy and explores the relationship between key psychosocial stressors (e.g., depressive symptoms, low social support, etc.) and HIV treatment outcomes among youth with HIV in rural South Africa. Before joining the Epidemiology doctoral training program, Lindsey completed her Master of Public Health degree at the University of Ghana, Legon, and worked in direct HIV service provision as a Health Educator and HIV Testing Services Coordinator in Indianapolis and Chicago.  In her post-doctoral training, Lindsey is eager to explore the causal effects of co-occurring psychosocial stressors on HIV treatment outcomes and formalize her training in implementation science methods.  Ultimately, she seeks to apply her research to the design and scale-up of effective mental health interventions for people with HIV in resource-constrained settings.
