- Research Associate Professor, Department of Emergency Medicine, University of Michigan Medical School
Dr. Goldstick is a Research Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine, the Director of Statistics and Methods in the CDC-funded U-M Injury Prevention Center, and the Co-Director of the Statistics cores of both the Institute for Firearm Injury Prevention and the University of Michigan Multi-disciplinary Coordinating Center for Firearm Injury Prevention. A statistician by training, he has extensive experience with a wide variety of statistical modeling, including predictive modeling/machine learning, and the analysis of longitudinal and spatially dependent data, especially as it applies to substance use, injury/violence data, and public health research. He has directed research studies funded by NIDA, NIAAA, CDC, and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, including a current R01 funded to build upon his previous work to predict future firearm violence risk. In addition, he has directed the construction of a state-wide surveillance system for fatal- and nonfatal-overdose surveillance for the last 4+ years. Broadly, his current research portfolio focuses on injury epidemiology—which particularly focuses on substance use and violence—and on estimating the effects of behavioral treatments designed to reduce injury risk, which has led to his collaboration on over 20 current and past federally funded research studies.
