I am a board certified emergency physician with over thirty years of clinical experience. Since 2000, I have also been the Director of the Injury Prevention Center at Rhode Island Hospital and also Director of its research fellowship. My own research has focused on behavioral change interventions to decrease injury recidivism with emergency department patients. I am currently PI on the NIGMS funded Rhode Island Hospital Injury Control Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE); research funded by NIAAA; and previously served as PI on other NIH grants, CDC grants, SAMHSA grant and foundation grants.   I have held national leadership positions within emergency medicine as well as cross disciplinary organizations such as national president of Society for the Advancement of Violence and Injury Research (SAVIR) and national board president of Injury Free Coalition for Kids.  

In addition, I teach Research Methods in Population Medicine and Leadership In Healthcare to medical students and serve as Director of the Master of Science in Population Medicine program at Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
