Dr. Trinitapoli researches both social demography and the sociology of religion. She has written extensively on the role of religion in the AIDS epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa. She is co-author of Religion and AIDS in Africa. Since 2008 Trinitapoli has been the principal investigator of Tsogolo la Thanzi (TLT) — an ongoing longitudinal study of young adults in Malawi supported by grants from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. TLT asks how young adults negotiate relationships, sex, and childbearing with a severe AIDS epidemic swirling around them.
