My research interests focus on health disparities in lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) adolescents and young adults, with a particular emphasis on ethnic/racial disparities in the HIV epidemic. My research aims to: (a) understand HIV risk and protective factors from intersectionality and developmental-ecological perspectives; (b) employ community-based participatory research approaches to build upon the needs and strengths of communities to identify and develop effective interventions; (c) design technology- and Internet-based approaches for observation and intervention; (d) adopt theoretically-driven program evaluation approaches to appropriately evaluate HIV prevention research and service efforts; and (e) apply qualitative and mixed methods approaches to research and evaluation efforts.
