I am an assistant professor of medicine, specialized in treating HIV/AIDS. I am currently on the faculty at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore, in the Institute of Human Virology.
I was born in London, England, and grew up in California (both north and south). My father was from Sri Lanka, and my mother is American. I am a typical American mutt – mixed in blood, and experience and outlook.
This blog was initially started to post photos of my travels to Africa and elsewhere, but it’s become a place to post random thoughts…now, mostly about our multinational family – English, American, Ethiopian!
I live in suburban Maryland, with my husband, a physician-scientist who works for the Food & Drug Administration and runs a research lab. We have one grown daughter, and two adopted boys, S and J, who keep us young in body and spirit. They are truly a gift and blessing in our lives, and I can’t imagine life without them.
