Focus of Work


My primary interests intersect sexual health, HIV, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) health. Currently, I use qualitative and quantitative methods to understand sexual and relationship health needs of LGBT persons, with the ultimate goal of informing the development of interventions to reduce health disparities and HIV and improve access to care in this population.
