My current research focuses on these topics:

(1) Innovative strategies for social and sexual partner management of people diagnosed with STD.
(2) Increasing health care seeking, especially for adolescents and young adults, including sexual health care, and provider and patient-focused intervention.
(3) Psychosocial antecedents and causal factors in sexual risk behaviors, especially for adolescents and young adults.
(4) Multilevel models for prevention and health promotion, especially sexual health.

More generally, I am interested in:

(1) Applying social psychological theories and models to health behaviors and outcomes.
(2) Direct and indirect consequences of brief interventions.
(3) Measurement strategies (especially in health science).
(4) Interdisciplinary health science, including the role of policy.
