He is Director of Strategic Initiatives in the Department of Psychiatry at Cambridge Health Alliance, where is also Director of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy Training in the Center for Mindfulness and Compassion. He received his training in Psychiatry and a Ph.D. in Neuroscience at Harvard. His research has been supported by grants from NIH, the National Institute of Justice, SAMHSA, and private foundations. He is Principal Investigator on a NIH grant that is using fMRI to characterize the impact of mindfulness training on health behaviors and the underlying changes in the neural pathways of emotion regulation. Other funded research includes studies of the mechanisms of health behavior change with mindfulness interventions and studies of culturally-adapted mindfulness training for diverse populations to promote coping and healing from the effects of trauma and violence. He is a qualified teacher of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) andMindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) for Depression and specializes in mindfulness-based psychotherapy.

    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.
