Dr. Chiaramonte's program of research promotes health equity for sexual and gender minorities through organizational and system-level change. As a community psychologist, Dr. Chiaramonte works from an ecological perspective and conduct research in collaboration with community organizations and/or the communities they serve. Two lines of research guide her work. The first lies at the intersection of HIV and gender-based violence (GBV), focusing on multisystemic responses to HIV and GBV among sexual and gender minorities. Her second line of work focuses on research methods and approaches that utilize existing community resources and elevate the voices of sexual and gender minority youth.
