Dr. Chenneville is the Marie E. and E. Leslie Cole Endowed Chair in Ethics and Professor and Chair of Psychology at the University of South Florida (USF) St. Petersburg campus. She also holds a Joint Appointment in the USF Department of Pediatrics where she serves as a Behavioral Health Consultant for the Pediatric and Adolescent Infectious Disease Program. Dr. Chenneville’s primary program of research is in the area of pediatric and adolescent HIV with a focus on the psychosocial issues affecting children and youth living with perinatally and behaviorally acquired HIV. Dr. Chenneville prioritizes issues related to ethics with a particular emphasis on the decisional capacity of children with HIV to participate in treatment and research along with global research ethics. She also engages in community-based participatory research on HIV-related stigma among youth. Because HIV is a global disease, Dr. Chenneville is interested in cross-cultural research. She has collaborated with colleagues in India and has been working on the HIV SEERs Project (Stigma-reduction through Education, Empowerment, and Research) in Kenya since 2015. She also is collaborating with colleagues in the UK as well as South Africa where she worked as a Fulbright Specialist in the Perinatal HIV Research Unit of the University of Witwatersrand. Dr. Chenneville has contributed significantly to the literature with dozens of peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters. In 2017, she published an edited book with Springer Publishing, A Clinical Guide to Pediatric HIV: Bridging the Gaps between Research and Practice. Dr. Chenneville’s contributions have been recognized through many awards and honors including the USF World Global Achievement Faculty Award for International Research, the USF Faculty Outstanding Research Award, the Women in Leadership and Philanthropy Award, the USFSP Chancellors Awards for Excellence in Research, Teaching, and Service, and the USF Outstanding Faculty Award.
