My research interests center around African American youth and young adults involvement in risky behavior such as substance use and HIV-related behavior. Working with the Center for Family Research, I assist with the development, evaluation, and dissemination of evidence-based, family-centered prevention programs for African American youth and young adults. My recent interests include a focus on the HIV-related behavior of young African American men and understanding the development of romantic and sexual relationships in their lives.
At the undergraduate level I teach Adolescent Development; at the graduate level I teach Research Methods and Prevention Science.
If you see a group of cyclists cruising down a country road, drive carefully, I may be in there somewhere. I also mountain bike.
