Social Processes of AIDS
Research Interests:
  • Behavioral strategies to reduce HIV risk and enhance AIDS care
  • Multivariate models
Research Synopsis: My research interest broadly defined is anything related to the reduction of HIV transmission through social and behavioral approaches. It could be related to enhancing medication adherence among HIV infectors, reducing sexual risks among HIV sero-discordant couples, or statistical modeling of the pattern of psycho-social constructs and risk behaviors. My very recent research is focused on HIV infectivity beliefs and sexual risk behaviors.
