Research Biography

Dr. Hampton’s research experience has been primarily focused on phenomena associated with the experience of severe mental illness. Her previous work has included investigations of racial disparities in mental health care, understanding health service utilization decisions among mental health consumers, and medical comorbidity. Since participating in postdoctoral research with the Nursing Research Center on HIV/AIDS Health Disparities at the University of California, San Francisco, Dr. Hampton has added HIV risk and prevention to her research interests and future plans include the development of strategies to prevent HIV transmission in individuals with severe mental illness, particularly those with co-occurring substance use disorders.
