Dr. Gonzalez's research focuses on identifying psychological and cognitive factors involved in treatment adherence in chronic illness. He has a particular interest in understanding 1) how beliefs about illness and treatment relate to illness self-management and 2) how depression and distress are associated with worse outcomes in chronic illness. Over the last several years, Dr. Gonzalez has focused on investigating the relationship between depression/distress and treatment nonadherence in HIV/AIDS and diabetes mellitus and on developing psychosocial interventions to treat depression and improve skills for disease self-management. He is a faculty member of the Diabetes Research and Training Center and has academic appointments in Medicine (Endocrinology) and Epidemiology and Population Health at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
