Personal Statement

My research examines the social and cultural factors influencing Black men’s sexual behaviors. I have a particular interest in exploring how Black men’s engagement in sexual concurrency is impacted by their stress-coping behaviors in response to diminished socioeconomic and educational capacity, gender role strain, and experiences of race and sexual orientation-based stigma and discrimination.  I am interested in translating the findings from my research into policies and programs which improve the health and life expectancy of Black men.
