    I am an Associate Professor in Residence with the Center for AIDS Prevention Studies (CAPS), Division of Prevention Sciences, Department of Medicine, at the University of California, San Francisco. I lead several community-based research projects at the Center of Excellence for Transgender Health focused on leveraging data to develop culturally relevant, trauma-informed, and transgender–specific programs and interventions to promote holistic health and wellness among transgender people, with an emphasis on serving transgender women of color and those affected by HIV. I am also a licensed clinical psychologist.
