Emily F. Rothman is a Professor of Community Health Sciences at the Boston University School of Public Health with a secondary appointments at the BU School of Medicine in the Department of Pediatrics and the Department of Emergency Medicine. She is also a visiting scientist at the Harvard Injury Control Research Center (HICRC).

Dr. Rothman has authored more than 85 publications that span the areas of intimate partner violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, firearm violence, and pornography. She has been the PI of five federally-funded research grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), and a co-investigator on numerous additional NIH, NIJ and foundation research grants. In 2009 she was awarded a K01 grant to study the relationship between youth alcohol use and dating abuse perpetration. Other research projects have included a randomized controlled trial of a dating abuse perpetration intervention in the emergency department setting, a NIJ-funded evaluation of a prevention and intervention program for commercially sexually exploited youth, and a NIH-funded study on the daily relationship between alcohol, marijuana use and dating abuse in a sample of primarily Black and Hispanic, urban-residing, youth. Most recently, she was awarded a NIJ grant to generate new information about dating abuse perpetration from LGBTQ, Native American, Black and Hispanic youth that will result in new survey instruments and clinical screening tools for dating abuse perpetration and victimization.

Dr. Rothman authored a report on programs for perpetrators of intimate partner violence published by the World Health Organization and has collaborated with colleagues in violence prevention at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She has provided violence-related consulting to the multiple state Departments of Public Health and coalitions of domestic violence programs, and given invited lectures at many of the world's most distinguished universities. She is frequently consulted by media. She has appeared on the Today Show on NBC, On Point with Tom Ashbrook on NPR, A1 on NPR, Weekend edition on NPR, provided expert advice on dating violence to Seventeen magazine, and her research has been featured by the New York Times magazine, the Wall Street Journal, CNN, Teen Vogue and other media outlets.
