Dr. Ransome's research investigates how social, economic, and psychosocial determinants influence racial/ethnic- and geography-related disparities in HIV care continuum indicators, alcohol and other substance use disorders, and youth homelessness. Two broad determinants of interest are a) social capital/cohesion, and b) religion, faith, and spirituality. Dr. Ransome currently has a K01 Mentored Research Scientist Development Award from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) to study the direct association and underlying mechanisms between social capital and cohesion on HIV care continuum outcomes in the United States. Some methodological approaches Dr. Ransome uses in his research program include survey data analysis, multilevel modeling, structural equation modeling, spatial epidemiology, and geographic information systems.
