Husain Lateef centers culturally responsive research to inform social work practice, prevention, and interventions with youth populations of African descent. His scholarship incorporates the advancement of both theoretical inferences for working with Black youth and rigorous science to explore the relationship between Afrocentric constructs and transitional success of Black youth through adolescence (ages 13-17), emerging adulthood (ages 18-29), and into established adulthood (ages 30-45).

Lateef's research also intersects with his practice experience working with serious juvenile offenders by advancing scholarship to inform reentry for this population post-conviction.Before joining the Brown School, he served as the social work supervisor for the Arizona Justice Project's Reentry Team, one of Arizona's first reentry programs assisting juveniles serving life-without-parole before the Supreme Court found many of those sentences unconstitutional.

Lateef is also a faculty scholar in the Institute for Public Health, a faculty affiliate with the Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity & Equity (CRE 2), and a faculty affiliate with the Race & Opportunity Lab within the Brown School. Courses taught by Lateef include Social Welfare Policy and Services and Criminal Justice-Involved Adults: Practice & Policy Interventions.
