Daniel Alohan (he/him) is a Ph.D. Student, Laney Graduate Fellow, and Centennial Diversity Scholar in the Department of Behavioral, Social, and Health Education Sciences at Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health.
His research centers around the health and well-being of cisgender Black sexual minority men. More specifically, Daniel is interested in understanding and addressing the multifacted impact of intersectional stigma and discrimination on health and social outcomes among this population. His work extends to exploring aspects such as mental health, sexual health, resilience, and access to services and opportunities that promote health. Additionally, he has emerging interests in implementation science and novel methodological approaches within the realm of public health research, such as Photovoice and ecological momentary assessments.
Under the mentorship of Dr. Natalie Crawford, Daniel actively contributes to several NIH-funded research projects. The overall aim of these projects is to pioneer innovative strategies that improve equitable access to evidence-based HIV prevention services, including PrEP and HIV testing, in non-traditional, community-based settings through structural change.
