Yuri A. Amirkhanian, PhD

Dr. Amirkhanian carries out research evaluating HIV prevention interventions that rely on existing social structures of high-risk communities in Eastern Europe and the U.S. He has studied social network prevention approaches with Roma (Gypsy) ethnic minorities, men who have sex with men, immigrants, and persons living with HIV infection. Dr. Amirkhanian's work also identifies mechanisms accounting for how interventions produce their effects and why effects vary within the same population. His interests include methods to transfer research findings to service providers, as well as network-level interventions to reach HIV+ persons to enter medical care.
