Brian M. D'Onofrio, Ph.D.
My research seeks to understand the etiology, assessment, and treatment of child and adolescent psychopathology using multiple designs,
including quasi-experimental designs, longitudinal research, and intervention studies. My recent research has focused on using and
combining several advanced epidemiologic approaches to better understand the consequences of perinatal risk factors, particularly
medications during pregnancy, and the risks and benefits of psychiatric and pain medication for the individuals themselves. Furthermore,
my research is focused on better understanding health disparities, particularly among vulnerable and marginalized groups of individuals.
Most of my research consists of secondary data analysis of large datasets (e.g., national Swedish datasets, datasets of 30,000 twin pairs
in Sweden, and health insurance claims datasets in the United States). I also conduct intervention and health services research, which is
currently focused on how to best assess behavioral health problems in community settings, including primary care clinics, behavioral health
clinics, emergency departments, educational institutions, and criminal justice settings.
