Her research interests include sexually transmitted infections, specifically genital herpes, and the role that female body image plays in shaping sexual experiences.

Both HSV-1 (which produces most cold sores) and HSV-2 (which produces most genital herpes) are ubiquitous and contagious.

In one study, daily genital swab samples found HSV-2 at a median of 12–28% of days among those who have had an outbreak, and 10% of days among those suffering from asymptomatic infection, with many of these episodes occurring without visible outbreak ("subclinical shedding").

In another study, 73 subjects were randomized to receive valaciclovir 1 g daily or placebo for 60 days each in a 2-way crossover design.

Sometimes, the viruses cause very mild or atypical symptoms during outbreaks.

However, they can also cause more troublesome forms of herpes simplex.

A daily swab of the genital area was self-collected for HSV-2 detection by polymerase chain reaction, in order to compare the effect of valaciclovir 1 g once daily for 60 days versus placebo on asymptomatic viral shedding in immunocompetent, HSV-2 seropositive subjects without a history of symptomatic genital herpes infection.

The study found that valaciclovir significantly reduced shedding during subclinical days compared to placebo, showing a 71% reduction.

84% of subjects had no shedding while receiving valaciclovir versus 54% of subjects on placebo.

88% of patients treated with valaciclovir had no recognized signs or symptoms versus 77% for placebo.

Asymptomatic reactivation means that the virus causes atypical, subtle or hard to notice symptoms that are not identified as an active herpes infection.
