Louis Smith joins DPS as a Research Coordinator working with Dr. Parya Saberi on two studies aiming to improve HIV engagement and medication adherence among young people living with HIV (YLWH). The studies aim to evaluate “youth-friendly” technology-based interventions which include directly observed therapy + conditional economic incentives conducted via a mobile app (YEHE), and counseling delivered via video-conferencing + a mobile app designed for YLWH (iVY). Louis is a lover of all things culinary and adventure related. Always curious to explore new restaurants and recipes, if not cooking (or eating), he's probably rock climbing or exploring a new trail. An avid sci-fi and fiction lover, he is also frequently looking for book recommendations and eagerly awaiting the release of the next Dune movie.
