Research Interests:
My research interests cover the following areas: human sexuality, HIV/AIDS prevention and health promotion, minority mental health, and professional practice issues. My current work focuses on the influence of racial-ethnic and sexual identity development on the psychosocial functioning of African-American gay and bisexual men, identifying risk and protective factors for sexual health, and examining the psychosocial factors associated with living with HIV/AIDS.
