Research Interests

Simon Sandh focuses his work on sexual health as well as substance use. His interest in the field began through his activism work in New York City where he witnessed the detrimental impact of health disparities in outcomes such as HIV, particularly among the most marginalized. His motivation to understand the causes of these health disparities led him to obtain his Master of Public Health degree where he focused on understanding barriers and facilitators to pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). Most recently, his work has expanded to the Philippines where he conducted Fulbright funded research exploring how social networks and cultural interpretations of sexuality impact sexual health outcomes in transgender women and men who have sex with men. Simon also brings with him years of teaching experience utilizing a student-centered approach and focuses his pedagogy around diversity, equity, and inclusion.
