Special Areas of Interest: I work with communities to understand causes of suicide, depression, and HIV infection among black and Latino gay and similarly identified men and transgender women. I also work with community institutions and organizations to form coalitions that seek to promote mental wellbeing and sexual health and prevent mental disorders and sexually transmitted infections by addressing youth and young adult unemployment, experiences in schools, and criminal justice system engagement. Additionally, I provide capacity building and technical assistance to agencies focused on grant writing, improving service delivery, development of new interventions, and monitoring and evaluation. Finally, I’m interested in using research to inform policy advocacy efforts.
