Brian J. Biroscak, PhD, MS, MA is Assistant Professor at Yale University School of Medicine. His line of research is focused by a social justice perspective with emphases on violence and injury prevention research. He has a strong research interest in system dynamics modeling, which utilizes ‘feedback’ insights and computer simulation to hypothesize, test, and refine explanations of systems change. His expertise in social marketing—which integrates commercial marketing with other approaches to influence behaviors that benefit individuals and the greater social good—is particularly valuable for prevention efforts. As Evaluation Director for the CDC-funded Florida Prevention Research Center at the University of South Florida, he works to increase the research and development capacity of their faculty and staff. Concurrently, he seeks to do the same as Research Director for the Section of Research within Yale’s Department of Emergency Medicine.
