Additional Information

I am a American Board of Pathology board certified forensic pathologist with experience in handling a wide variety of case types, involving all manners of death. I have performed over 2500 autopsies including over 125 homicides. I bring solid training from The University of Pennsylvania and The Johns Hopkins Hospital. I am actively practicing in Rhode Island and have worked in Maryland. I have been qualified as an expert witness in the fields of forensic pathology, postmortem toxicology interpretation, trauma interpretation, and cause and manner of death determination. I have also published in multiple peer reviewed journals on postmortem diagnoses such as infection, tumor diagnosis and toxicology. I have handled domestic and international cases. I also perform private autopsies in an effort to aid in family closure and/or litigation needs. This is can be done within a few days of hire. This process DOES NOT interfere with open casket funerals. Toxicology and other studies can also be done. I pride myself in providing high quality expert work with clear communication needed for successful litigation and problem solving. In addition to expert consultations to attorneys, law enforcement and other clients, I am an adjunct professor at the Roger Williams University in the Criminal Justice Department and Boston University School of Medicine . I have given televised, radio and online interviews about various aspects of forensic pathology.
