Tyriesa Howard Howell's research focuses on examining and understanding social and cultural determinants of sexual and reproductive health among adolescents and women. She is particularly interested in the development of mHealth technology as an innovative approach to promoting sexuality health education for youth. Some of Howell's research engagement has included socio-behavioral interventions using mixed-methods to examine the use of interactive video game and life simulation technology to encourage HIV treatment adherence and routinized HIV testing among adolescents living with and affected by HIV. Her emerging research also seeks to address maternal health disparities experienced by Black women living in the U.S.

Howell teaches courses in Human Behavior and the Social Environment. She is actively involved with the Council on Social Work Education as an appointed member of the Council on Racial, Ethnic, and Cultural Diversity.

Prior to joining the Brown School, Howell completed post-doctoral training at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey in the School of Social Work Center for Prevention Science.
