Jonathon Rendina is a fourth year doctoral student in Psychology at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York and a Research Associate at the Center for HIV Educational Studies & Training (CHEST) of Hunter College, CUNY where he works closely with his mentors, Dr. Sarit Golub and Dr. Jeffrey Parsons. He received a B.Phil. from the Pennsylvania State University with a focus on Sexuality & Health in 2004 and an M.A. in Social/Personality Psychology from the CUNY Graduate Center in 2012. In addition to his PhD in Social/Personality Psychology, he is concurrently pursuing his MPH in Biostatistics which he expects to receive in May of 2012. He was recently awarded a two-year National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Ruth L. Kirchstein Individual Predoctoral Training Fellowship to fund his final two years of doctoral training. His research focuses on the health and well-being of gay and bisexual men, with a particular focus on how identity-related changes and social stigma associated with HIV infection influence health outcomes and behavior. His dissertation will utilize daily diary data from an NIMH-funded R01 (R01MH087714; PI: Parsons) to examine how intrapsychic and interpersonal conflict during sexual situations influence sexual risk behavior for highly sexually active gay and bisexual men. The CRF Methodological Studies Award will allow him to attend the training on Intensive Longitudinal Data Analysis to enhance his ability to conduct the analyses required for his dissertation.
