HIV prevention and care among disadvantaged populations, domestic and international approaches to behavior change, social and personal network analysis, neighborhood factors and health behaviors, injection drug users, STIs, alcohol, harm reduction, mental health, social support, social context and risk behavior, integrating qualitative and quantitative methods.
My work focuses on HIV and STI prevention and care with disadvantaged populations, mental health and distress among inner-city residents, the role of substance abuse on HIV risk behaviors, and measurement of social-contextual factors including social and personal network analysis, neighborhood characteristics, and geographic information systems among disadvantaged populations. I have helped design, implement, and evaluate over a dozen randomized clinical trials of behavioral social network oriented interventions for disadvantaged populations.
