Anthony has been actively involved in psychological research since he was an undergraduate at Hunter College. Throughout this time, he has had the opportunity to work and collaborate with researchers on a myriad of research studies in the field. The focus of these projects include examining the association of executive function with methamphetamine use and adherence to antiretroviral therapy (ART) among HIV-positive individuals and studying the effect of neurocognitive factors on the association between substance use and high-risk sexual behavior.
Anthony's current role involves ensuring the effective implementation of study protocols and data collection for the research studies conducted by HART. One of these studies includes PrEPARE NYC, which is designed to examine different ways of presenting HIV prevention information to populations most affected by HIV in order to determine the most effective methods of disseminating this information.
Anthony's research interests include the cognitive neuropsychological and cognitive factors underlying substance abuse. Anthony plans to continue rarefying his research skills with the hope of pursuing a Doctorate in Psychology.
