I am a physician and sociobehavioral researcher with an interest in HIV among adolescents and young adults. In particular, I conduct research focused on young Black gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men, with the goal of improving HIV care outcomes and general well-being in this population. Other areas of interest include mental health service utilization, qualitative research methods, and HIV- and mental health-related work with Ethiopian communities.
