About Me

I currently serve as the Director of the Center of Gambling Studies at Rutgers University, School of Social Work.  My research focuses on psychometric measurement, the etiology and treatment of behavioral addictions, specifically disordered gambling, and gambling-related policy issues.  I have served as an NIMH pre-doctoral fellow, a Fulbright fellow, and a research intern at the National Research Council at the National Academies.  I am a co-editor, advisory board member or board member of several journals and a consultant and grant reviewer for international, national and state agencies.  Also, I serves as member of the legislative and research boards of and as a clinical supervisor for the National Council on Problem Gambling in Washington D.C.  A former criminal prosecutor, I am a member of the Thomson-Reuters Expert Witness Services (TREWS) network and serve as a forensic consultant in state and federal court cases involving gambling-related crimes.  I am committed to working with legislators globally to develop responsible gambling frameworks to promote informed choice and harm minimization.  I have recently co-edited a book, The Wiley-Blackwell Handbook of Disordered Gambling (In Press).
