Wilson Vincent, PhD, MPH

Assistant Professor

I am a clinical and community psychologist who is also trained in public health, including epidemiology and intervention development, and quantitative research methods. Broadly, I am interested in health disparities that affect racial and ethnic minorities. More specifically, I am focusing on 1) increasing engagement in care and treatment for vulnerable patient populations (e.g., increasing retention in the HIV continuum of care among HIV-positive Black men) and 2) the effects of stigma and psychosocial distress on the mental and physical health of vulnerable populations. I am also interested in building quantitative models of the mechanisms of action of interventions and of biopsychosocial theories of health.
