Personal profile

Research Interests

My primary areas of research interest are prevention of behavioral transmission of HIV infection and promotion of health and wellness among HIV infected adolescent and young adult populations, including sexual and gender minorities. In particular, I have been involved in the development of practical and scalable interventions across the HIV care continuum. A new area of interest is use of technology to promote health and wellness among adolescents more generally.
