My research is concerned with HIV risk behaviors and substance use, particularly with disadvantaged communities in both domestic and international settings. My research activities have centered around three areas: 1) to utilize advanced statistical techniques to evaluate HIV prevention interventions; 2) to adopt social network theory, measurement and analysis to examine social and contextual factors associated with HIV and substance use risks, and 3) to explore social determinants of health disparities of substance use and HIV.
