    Collapse Overview
    I am a licensed clinical psychologist (CA PSY28178) and my research is broadly concerned with the intersection between psychology and health. I focus on populations affected by substance use, HIV, and congenital heart defects (CHD). The primary aim of my HIV research is to better characterize the impact of alcohol use on HIV treatment and prevention in both domestic and international populations. I am currently conducting an NIH/NIAAA-funded (K01) study examining the event-level relationship between alcohol use and sexual risk behavior among HIV-positive men who have sex with men (MSM) via daily data collection methods. I am also involved with several projects in East Africa examining alcohol use among HIV-positive adults and assessing the impact of interventions to reduce this alcohol use. I have a second line of research examining the mental health needs of parents of children with critical CHDs, and I currently have a Hellman-funded project in association with the Pediatric Heart Center at UCSF to support this work. By advancing this research program, I hope to design integrated behavioral and psychological interventions that can enhance the care of patients and families coping with chronic medical conditions.
