I am a Professor of Psychology at the George Washington University, with a Ph.D. in Clinical/Community Psychology from the University of Maryland at College Park. I am also the Founding Director of the Latino Health Research Center. My current research focuses on HIV risk among men who have sex with men. I am strongly committed to mentoring racial/ethnic and sexual minority students and faculty. I have mentored 24 ethnic minority and non-minority graduate students (9 of whom received F31 awards); 5 post docs (2 K23 awards, 1 F32 award); and 8 faculty members.
