Public Health Interests:

HIV, STIs, community based participatory research, health disparities, adolescents, families

Current Public-Health Related Activities:

My research experiences have focused on health disparities issues among children, women, and men. The majority of my work has focused on designing and evaluating evidence-based HIV/STI prevention programs for vulnerable populations, nationally and internationally. I am interested in investigating cultural and social practices of vulnerable populations and the ways in which health risks are defined and experienced.
