Bio
Dr. Boyd is an assistant professor at The Ohio State University College of Social Work. Dr. Boyd received his Ph.D. in Social Welfare from UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs in 2019. He is a visiting professor at UCSF through the Center for AIDS Prevention Studies program. Dr. Boyd is also a Research Education Institute for Diverse Scholars (REIDS) Fellow at Yale University School of Public Health through the Center Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS (CIRA). His research addresses how socio-contextual factors impact young Black gay and bisexual males' decision-making behavior. He is particularly interested in examining young Black males as individuals in the family context. Dr. Boyd wants to understand what role the family plays (e.g., parents, caregivers, siblings) in HIV prevention and intervention. Lastly, he is trying to understand how parents and other figures protect Black, gay and bisexual males against HIV acquisition and other sexual and mental health-related outcomes.
