Dr. Mowafi's interests are in developing the science and practice of emergency care with emphasis on low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) where the burden of emergency conditions is greatest is combined with an unmet need for emergency services.

His research interests include analysis of global emergency care systems; evaluating the burden of injury in LMICs and addressing health and human security in humanitarian emergencies. He has 15 years of experience in consulting and research in emergency medicine and global public health.

Dr. Mowafi's current research includes evaluation of health data from a network of hospitals operating inside war-affected Syria; modeling household income effects of road traffic injury in rural Uganda; and evaluating Chief Complaint as a measure of emergency care in low-resource settings globally.

Dr. Mowafi is an Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine and Chief of the Section of Global Health and International Emergency Medicine. He also serves as the Director of the GHIEM Fellowship.
