Monti is an internationally distinguished scientist who has increased our understanding of the biobehavioral mechanisms that underlie addictive behavior. During his nearly 40-year career in addiction research, his work has spanned human laboratory and clinical studies of the behavioral and psychopharmacological effects of alcohol and other drugs as well as the assessment of addictive behaviors, mechanisms of behavior change and early intervention. He has been at the forefront of the development and testing of evidence-based treatment approaches for alcohol-related problems in a wide range of populations.
Monti currently serves as the Donald G. Millar distinguished professor of alcohol and addiction studies, professor of behavioral and social sciences and professor of psychiatry and human behavior and director of the Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies at Brown University.
