Research Interests:

My research interests focus on the intersections of gender, sexuality, and behavioral health. Most of my present work focuses on motivations for anabolic-androgenic steroid use among men; delineation of use versus abuse of anabolic steroids; and behavioral factors surrounding HIV testing. I also have interests in research on professional training and research methods.
