My research interests are examining the community and contextual effects influencing minority health risk behaviors.

Current Research

I am currently working on a project that focuses on African American young men who are involved in two ongoing sexual relationships.  Specifically, I am looking at inconsistent condom use within this context of sexual concurrency.
