Dr. Daniels is Assistant Professor and Director of the Public Health program at Lehman College, CUNY. He has conducted global health research for over ten years with collaborators in the US, Kenya and South Africa primarily. His implementation science research focuses on the adaptation of evidence-based interventions to improve the HIV and TB treatment cascades for men who have sex with men (MSM) and men in low-resource settings. He is particularly interested in interventions that utilize mHealth tools to support care self-management and patient-provider communication. This line of research is aimed to develop models and methods for intervention adaptation with vulnerable communities in order to improve health outcomes and wellbeing. In addition to this work, Joseph has conducted research to assess the effects of training interventions on human resources for health in Kenya, Uganda, Botswana and Tanzania, and he recently finished a five-year, mixed methods study to understand the social determinants of HIV care and support for MSM and transgender individuals in Mpumalanga, South Africa where he lived. Joseph completed his PhD at the University of Washington. After his doctoral training, he was a senior fellow in the Department of Global Health at the same institution, and then he completed a three-year, post-doctoral research fellowship in Global HIV/AIDS prevention at UCLA prior to coming to CUNY.
