Lori A.J. Scott-Sheldon, PhD
Associate Professor (Research), Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior, Alpert Medical School, Brown University (Affiliate)
Dr. Scott-Sheldon’s work broadly focuses on health promotion and disease prevention in the domains of sexual health, HIV, and alcohol use. Most of her research, supported by the National Institutes of Health, uses meta-analytic methodology and statistical analyses to determine the efficacy of behavioral, social, and biomedical interventions to promote health behavior change and to evaluate individual, contextual, and structural factors that facilitate behavior change (i.e., moderators of treatment efficacy). Dr. Scott-Sheldon also has an extensive line of primary-level research investigating facilitators and barriers of sexual health in the context of alcohol use and HIV/STIs. She collaborates with InCHIP PIs, Drs. Blair T. Johnson, Seth C. Kalichman, and Kerry L. Marsh, on primary- and secondary-level HIV-related research.
