I am pursuing a program of community-engaged, clinical research to integrate behavioral and biomedical approaches to HIV prevention with marginalized, underserved populations. My prior research examined the efficacy of psychological interventions for HIV-positive persons and documented HIV-related health disparities among stimulant (i.e., cocaine, crack, and methamphetamine) users. Currently, I am developing and testing psychological interventions that are designed to optimize the effectiveness of HIV treatment as prevention (TasP) with HIV-positive, methamphetamine-using men who have sex with men (MSM). The ultimate goal of this program of research will be to determine whether interventions targeting affect regulation can boost the effectiveness of TasP with this stimulant users.
