Kimberly M. Nelson, PhD, MPH earned her MPH in epidemiology from the University of Washington (UW) and a PhD in clinical psychology also from UW. She also completed a fellowship at the Fordham University Research Ethics Training Institute. Having both a public health and psychology background, she focuses on community- and population-level health implications while conducting individual-level behavioral research.

Dr. Nelson's research concentrates on psychological and structural factors associated with the transmission or acquisition of HIV among sexual and racial/ethnic minority adolescents and adults. She is funded by a K23 award from NIMH (K23MH109346) during which she will develop an online sexual health intervention to promote adolescent sexual minority males’ critical examination of online media and decrease their sexual risk-taking. In addition to her career development award, she is PI of an R01 (MH119892) which seeks to understand the role that minor consent laws play in HIV/STI testing and biomedical prevention decision-making among US adolescents, with a particular focus on the impact among sexual and gender minority youth.
