Areas of Interest

  • My primary interest is in elucidating the social forces that contribute to patterns of sexually transmitted diseases in communities.

  • Social epidemiology is entwined with social ethics. A second area of interest for me is thus public health ethics. I was the principal author of the American Public Health Association's Code of Ethics.

  • My interest in teaching led to my editing and writing of the textbook entitled Epidemiologic Methods for the Study of Infectious Diseases, published by Oxford University Press, and creating resources for teaching public health ethics.
