Jennifer Huang Bouey's research can be grouped into three substantive and inter-related domains: 1) Determinants of HIV risk behaviors, especially those associated with substance abuse and violence exposures, among migrants and marginalized populations; 2) Barriers to health services access and utilization among recent immigrant populations; and 3) Impact of acculturation on chronic diseases and mental health.

Embedded in her work is methodological innovation in conducting community-based epidemiology research in the often hidden and marginalized populations. These methodological contributions include testing a “best practice model” for community-based participatory research, improving respondent driven sampling methods and network analyses, combining individual level cognitive behavioral models with social environment contextual factors, and pioneering use of mixed-method approaches to probe health disparity issues among migrants.
