HIV prevention and behavioral epidemiology, both in the United States and abroad
The primary focus of my research has been in HIV prevention and behavioral epidemiology, both in the United States and abroad. I also have conducted numerous research projects in the areas of substance abuse epidemiology, smoking, aging, mental health, and housing as health care. Although a great deal of my research has been conducted among gay men, I also have worked with other populations at high risk of HIV infection and expect to expand on this work.
