Public Health Interests
HIV/AIDS; Maternal & child health
Professor Kershaw's research is in the area of HIV/STD prevention and reproductive and maternal-child health. Specifically, he is interested in 1) the role of interpersonal relationships (e.g., romantic, social network, family) on sexual health, reproductive health, mental health, and substance use of adolescents and emerging adults; 2) the development of behavioral interventions to improve sexual, reproductive, and mental health of adolescents and emerging adults; and 3) the use technology and social networking to assess and intervene on risk behavior of adolescents and emerging adults. Currently, he is involved in several research projects assessing the influence of behavioral interventions aimed to reduce the occurrence of HIV/STD and negative perinatal and postnatal outcomes for adolescents and emerging adults in the United States and abroad.
Additionally, Professor Kershaw is interested in methodological and quantitative issues related to designing, implementing, and evaluating applied behavioral interventions. He has expertise in advanced data analytic strategies including structural equation modeling, multi-level modeling, dyadic data analyses, and social network analysis.
