Dr. Jones's reasearch focuses on the behavioral aspects of HIV prevention among men who have sex with men (MSM). Broadly, his research goals are focused on improving methods of determining HIV risk in order to improve targeting of HIV prevention interventions, such as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). Previous projects have included:

  • Evaluating the utility of risk assessment tools in identifying men who are good candidates for PrEP
  • Assessing the relationship between delay discounting, a behavioral economic measure of impulsivity, and sexual risk-taking
  • Using Internet- and mobile-based methods to conduct HIV prevention research and disseminate HIV prevention interventions
