Current Areas of Research

My laboratory focuses on gender and sexuality, and includes research on feminist identity, transgender health, and the impact of sexual behavior and expression on physical, mental, emotional, and relational health. I direct the Hunter HIV/AIDS Research Team (HART), which investigates HIV as a case study for larger psychological concepts such as stigma and stereotypes, interpersonal and intergroup processes, identity development, and judgment and decision-making. Our NIH-funded implementation science research focuses on HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and applies theory and methods across disciplines (including social psychology, neuropsychology, behavioral economics and decision sciences) to inform new approaches to HIV prevention and care.
