As a researcher, he works to integrate system dynamics modeling—i.e., the use of causal maps and formal models with computer simulation to uncover and understand endogenous sources of system behavior—and social marketing—i.e., the use of marketing principles and techniques to influence target audience behaviors that will benefit society as well as the individual—for the elimination of health disparities, particularly in the areas of violence and injury prevention. He has extensive experience as a program evaluator. He also works with the CDC-funded Florida Prevention Research Center at the University of South Florida.
