He was a member of the Yale Stress Center and Interdisciplinary Research Consortium on Stress, Self-Control, and Addiction (IRCSSA), which conducts cutting edge, interdisciplinary research to examine the biological and psychological mechanisms underlying human responses to stress and the role of self-control in driving unhealthy and addictive behaviors.

His scholarly work has been primarily concerned with understanding the links between stress, traumatic stress, coping styles, drug cravings, and the course of substance use disorders, and he has authored 25 scientific articles and book chapters in these and other areas. In addition to his scholarly activities, he also functioned as a clinician, educator, and supervisor providing psychotherapy to substance dependent individuals at the Substance Abuse Treatment Unit (SATU) of the Connecticut Mental Health Center (CMHC) and teaching medical students and psychology interns at Yale University.

From 2013-2016, he served as a part time Research Scientist within the Department of Psychiatry at The University of Miami-Miller School of Medicine directing NIH funded medication trials for substance addictions. He has been a Professor in the Doctoral Clinical Psychology Program at Albizu University from 2009 to the present, teaches psychiatry residents as a Voluntary Assistant Professor at The University of Miami-Miller School of Medicine, and provides trainings to community health providers through the Miami-Dade Area Health Education Center (AHEC).
