As a public health researcher, Dr. Coulter's mission is to reduce substance use and violence inequities for sexual and gender minority youth (SGMY; i.e., adolescents who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender [LGBT]). To accomplish this mission, he conduct three lines of inquiry: epidemiologic, intervention, and systems science research. Dr. Coulter's research agenda integrates these three approaches to (1) improve our understanding of the complex social mechanisms producing SGMY health inequities and (2) increase our knowledge about the impact of interventions on violence and substance use inequities for SGMY.
