Peter F. Rebeiro, PhD, MHS


Assistant Professor of Medicine, Divisions of Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology

Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Medicine, Division of Epidemiology

Assistant Professor of Biostatistics

Research Description

My research interests include quantifying clinical, contextual, and geographic patterns and correlates of retention in care and other HIV Care Continuum outcomes among persons living with HIV in North, Central, and South America, and in other IeDEA regions ( Here are a few examples of my specific interests: * Application of appropriate causal inference methods to examine the impact of clinic/program-level interventions to improve retention and HIV Care Continuum outcomes (e.g., linkage to care, ART adherence, virologic suppression, etc.) * Application of spatial analysis methods to quantify geographic and temporal variation and clustering of suboptimal HIV Care Continuum outcomes * Geographic mapping of outcomes to disseminate epidemiologic data in a timely and easily digestible format (for professionals and the public)

Brief Description

Dr. Peter Rebeiro recently joined the Vanderbilt faculty in the Division of Infectious Diseases with a focus on HIV epidemiology. After growing up in Nashville, TN, Peter received his BA in biology from Yale University in December 2005, and worked as a Research Assistant and Coordinator in the Epidemiology/Outcomes unit of the Center for AIDS Research at Vanderbilt from 2006 through 2010. He received an ScM in epidemiology (infectious diseases) in May 2012, an MHS in biostatistics, and a PhD in epidemiology (general epidemiology and methods) in August 2014 from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. His research focuses on quantifying measurement error, assessing quality of care, and analyzing spatial and contextual factors related to the HIV Continuum of Care in North, Central, and South America. Peter is continuing his collaboration with the Epidemiology/Outcomes group here, and he now works with the Caribbean Central and South American Network for HIV Epidemiology (CCASAnet), as well as with the North American AIDS Cohort Collaboration on Research and Design (NA-ACCORD).
