Profile Picture

My research activities were initally in the areas of disruptive physicians and workplace violence, and have now shifted to include work on terrorism-related matters. I am a member of the Biological Sciences Expert Group of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and have served as a consultant on terrorism and other related matters to the FBI 's National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime. I served as a subject matter expert for the Biological Threat Classification Program of the Department of Homeland Security and testified before the Congressional Subcommittee on Prevention of Nuclear and Biological Attack. I was the mental health liaison for the Association of Trial Lawyers of America to the September 11 Victims’ Fund and served on consensus panels drafting guidelines on workplace violence for the FBI and the American Society for Industrial Security. I was a participant in the ODNI 2008 Summer Hard Problem Program (SHARP) entitled “Biological Warfare Perpetrators: Rationality, Culture, and Likelihood of Discovery.” In 2009, I served as a member of SHARP studying “Nuclear Attribution in Nuclear Forensics and Intelligence Analysis.” From 2009-2011, I was a member of the Expert Behavioral Analysis Panel designated by the Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the DIstrict of Columbia to conduct an analysis of the materials in the Amerithrax case.

My teaching activities include regular presentations at hospital and medical school-based didactic programs, case conferences, and seminars. In addition, I lecture regularly at HMS continuing medical education programs as well as at programs sponsored by other institutions nationally. My teaching also includes regular presentations on mental issues to the legal and business communities.I maintain an ongoing clinical practice with a primary focus on mood and anxiety disorders. SInce 2006, I have taught a freshman seminar at Harvard College entitled “Responsibility, the Brain, and Behavior” and I was designated as a Knowles Scholar in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard College from 2007-2009. I helped develop and co-teach the Managing Workplace Conflicts Program for the Massachusetts Medical Society, now in its sixth year.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
