I am a social psychologist with interests in both theory and application (e.g., health, politics). The primary foci of my current research are:

(1) Intergroup relations and the political psychology of terrorism, with a particular emphasis on understanding the factors that cause people to support terrorist acts and groups. I am currently an investigator with the National Center for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of Maryland (a U.S. Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence).

(2) Research on the effectiveness of music-based HIV prevention interventions among urban adolescents, which reflects a synthetic convergence of several areas of interest: Using music, social networks, and peer-based strategies.

(3) Health Behavior and HIV Prevention.

Regardless of specific content area, I feel that it is important to put social and health psychology principles to work where they may be of greatest benefit. The application of well-tested and well-grounded theoretical models has a great potential to address real world problems.
