Dustin T. Duncan, ScD, Columbia University, Mailman School of Public Health Thursday, November 19, 2020 “Black Gay and Bisexual Men and HIV Disparities: The N2 Cohort Study”

Dr. Duncan is an internationally recognized social and spatial epidemiologist studying how specific neighborhood characteristics influence population health and health disparities, among sexual and gender minorities, especially gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender women from an intersectional perspective. His research has a strong domestic focus – including in New York City – but recent work spans the globe, including studies in Paris, London, and Abu Dhabi. Forthcoming collaborative projects are in east Africa. Methodologically, his research utilizes a geospatial lens to apply, for example, computer-based geographic information systems (GIS), web-based and real-time geospatial technologies, and geospatial modeling techniques. For instance, he applies Global Positioning System (GPS) devices and smartphones to examine spatial mobility and social networks in and across neighborhoods. His work appears in leading public health, medical, geography, criminology, demography and psychology journals. He has over 150 high-impact publications and book chapters, and his research has appeared in major media outlets including U.S. News & World Report, the Washington Post, the New York Times and CNN.

This lecture is on of the InCHIP Lecture Series, and is cosponsored by the Rainbow Center and many other departments listed at the webpage.
