My research is aimed at improving mental health outcomes and reducing health disparities among Latino/a communities impacted by HIV. Advancements in HIV treatment (i.e., therapies are better tolerated and forgiving to lapses in adherence) necessitate solutions for “sustained” engagement in HIV care and good clinical outcomes. My current research is to assess the concept and dimensions of engagement in HIV care among Spanish and English-speaking Latinos in San Francisco, and to model the trajectories of HIV treatment outcomes as a function of depression and substance use in a national cohort of Latinos in HIV care settings. I am also interested in understanding the cultural and linguistic barriers that are associated with poor engagement with HIV and mental health care, and m-Health and adaptive treatment strategies to help overcome these barriers.
