He has served as the Principal Investigator or Co-Principal Investigator on numerous federally funded grants, and has collaborated extensively with colleagues in Pittsburgh and other academic institutions. A prolific writer, he has co-authored over 200 peer-reviewed publications as well as books, book chapters, and invited articles.
