My research interests intersect around the prevention of child sexual abuse victimization and perpetration. More specifically, I have conducted research on the evaluation of sex offender public policy effects; development and evaluation of assessment instruments and clinical interventions addressing youth and adult sex offending behaviors; development and evaluation of interventions addressing youth sexual risk behaviors. Additionally, I have adapted and evaluated an intervention addressing youth HIV medication adherence problems.
