Academic Interests

Dr. Schneider’s interdisciplinary research employs network approaches to examine Human Immunodeficiency Virus and Sexually Transmitted Infection prevention and transmission dynamics in South India and South Chicago. He leads efforts to operationalize improved prevention and treatment strategies in resource restricted settings by first describing the social networks and then leveraging them at the human and microbe level as interventions. He has completed some of the first examinations of sexual networks of tribals and of truck drivers from a generally representative sample in India, and has developed new digital communication strategies for collecting network data. He works on novel HIV prevention strategies in high-risk populations such as minority MSM both in Asia and the US. He has close affiliations with public health education and training institutions in India and oversees a transport sector clinic in Southern India. As Director of Global Health Programs for the Section of Infectious Diseases and Global Health, Dr. Schneider teaches HIV and Global Health courses at the University of Chicago and frequently has students and other trainees from around the country working on research or clinical projects in India.
