Gregg Selke, Ph.D.
Clinical Assistant Professor of Psychiatry & Human Behavior
Psychiatry & Human Behavior
Work: +1 401-444-4500
My current research interests include the neuropsychological outcomes/correlates of mild traumatic brain injuries (including concussion), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and late effects of cancer treatment. I also have an interest in the relationship between cognitive functioning, behavioral functioning, and sleep sleep disturbance in pediatric medical and developmental conditions.


I received my undergraduate degree from Washington University in St. Louis, and doctorate in Clinical Psychology (Neuropsychology Specialization) from the University of Florida. I completed my clinical internship at the Kennedy Krieger Institute and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and completed a two year post-doctoral fellowship in Pediatric Neuropsychology at the University of Florida. I am currently on staff at both Rhode Island Hospital and Bradley Hospital in affiliation with the neuropsychology program.
