Christine Rael, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Fellow
Overview Publications Professional Background

 

 

Christine Rael, PhD, is a postdoctoral research fellow at the HIV Center. She received her Ph.D. in Health and Behavioral Science from the University of Colorado in Denver. Dr. Rael’s recent research focuses on existing and emerging biomedical HIV prevention methods. Particularly, she is interested in developing strategies to tailor these tools to fit the unique life contexts of end-users during the product development process, especially transgender women. To do this, Dr. Rael’s work engages mHealth strategies (e.g., smartphone applications), novel modes of medication delivery, and end-user designed adherence support interventions. Dr. Rael’s other work focuses on self- and sexual partner-testing for HIV infection.

 

Prior to her appointment at the HIV Center, Dr. Rael’s research focused on identifying relationships between stigma, depression, and poor health outcomes in children of female sex workers, women living with HIV/AIDS, and Haitian migrant women in the Dominican Republic.
