Research Interests:

My main area of interest is in the design, implementation and evaluation of programs designed to reduce risk for HIV/STI transmission, and to promote adequate referral, retention, and adherence to regimens among persons with HIV/STI. My second broad area of scholarship relates to the application of community engaged research approaches to the reduction of gender and ethnic/racial health disparities.

Why I enjoy working at SUNY Downstate:

I have a great network of colleagues from a variety of disciplines here at Downstate and in the surrounding community--these collaborations result in many new and exciting ideas and opportunities for practice and research. I also gain a lot from working with the students in the school of public health and other schools and programs at Downstate; they help to keep me energized and passionate about public health!
