      Collapse Overview
      The primary aim of my research is to better characterize the impact of alcohol use on HIV treatment and prevention in both domestic and international populations. To accomplish this aim, I am currently conducting an NIH/NIAAA-funded (K01) longitudinal study examining the event-level relationship between alcohol use and sexual risk behavior among HIV-positive men who have sex with men (MSM) using interactive voice response (IVR) technology. I am also involved with several projects in East Africa examining alcohol use among HIV-positive adults and assessing the impact of screening and brief interventions (SBI) to reduce this alcohol use. By advancing this research program, I hope to enhance HIV treatment-related outcomes and decrease the risk of onward transmission among people living with HIV who consume alcohol.
