His current research focuses on the neuropsychological, psychosocial, and substance abuse risk factors of HIV prevention among heterosexual African American men. Specifically, his work examines the role of alcohol and marijuana use, sexual risk behaviors, neurocognitive performance, and psychological determinants in HIV infection risk and immune function in HIV positive heterosexual African American adult men.
