Research & Publications
I began my 31 year research career at Duke University and the Durham VA in 1991 and moved to VA Connecticut and University of Connecticut in 2012. In January 2016, I was appointed Section Chief of Chief of General Internal Medicine at VA Connecticut in West Haven and Professor of Medicine at Yale. In this role, I oversee the academic development and clinical productivity of the hospitalists, primary care, and research faculty based at VA Connecticut. I also serve as the Director and Principal Investigator of the Pain Research, Informatics, Multimorbidities, and Education (PRIME) Center of Excellence at VA Connecticut. This is a VA HSR&D center grant providing over 7 million in infrastructure support for multidisciplinary research focusing on improving pain in Veterans.
