I am committed to examining how structural-level (e.g., policy, built environment, structural racism) characteristics shape health care delivery and health behaviors among under-resourced populations, including Black sexually minoritized men and transgender women . I use epidemiological methods and behavioral theories to analyze and synthesize quantitative data and translate the findings into public health recommendations for downstream action or change. Current intersections of research area and methodological expertise include: HIV health care engagement, alcohol and cannabis use, structural racism, stigma and discrimination, ecological momentary assessment, network analyses, and place-based studies.
