Dr. Mitchell is an Assistant Professor in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Duke University School of Medicine. He received his doctorate in 2009 from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

Dr. Mitchell’s research primarily focuses on attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) across development, including treatment development and substance use comorbidity.
