    A 1991 graduate of the University of Arizona College of Medicine, Dr. D'Alli completed residency training in general psychiatry and fellowship training in child psychiatry at Duke University Medical Center. ?For 13 years Dr. D'Alli took clinical and administrative leadership of the Division of Child Development and Behavioral Health in the Duke Department of Pediatrics. ?Dr. D'Alli developed an Internet-based telepsychiatry service for special education students with learning, social, and emotional difficulties in self-contained Durham, North Carolina, public school therapeutic programs, providing weekly, interactive telehealth consultation to the children, school staff, and on-site child psychiatry trainees during the school year. In 2015 Dr. D'Alli joined the faculty of the University of Florida College Of Medicine, where he is playing an active role in the clinical, educational, and scholarly missions of the Departments of Psychiatry and Pediatrics, including program development in autism and developmental-behavioral pediatrics services.Pediatric psychiatry is a mid-career change for Dr. D'Alli. After earning a bachelor of science in physics and a master of science education from the University of Florida in Gainesville, he taught physics, earth and general science, and coached football in a suburban Atlanta public high school. ?Later, he returned to graduate school at Brown University, participating as a member of NASA's Mars Viking Lander Imaging team at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in 1976 and completing a master of planetary geology in 1977. ?After working two years at the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C, he was recruited by NASA to develop a summer enrichment short course for university faculty in planetary geology at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona. ?A serendipitous guest appearance in 1979 on KPNX TV, the Phoenix NBC affiliate, evolved into a part time role as an on-air science reporter and two years later into a full time on-air science editor and back-up anchor on KAET TV, the PBS affiliate in Phoenix/Tempe. ?He also contributed to the PBS network's MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour. ?On February 23, 1983, D'Alli anchored the first, prime-time, network television live broadcast of open-heart surgery, originating from a Phoenix hospital and carried internationally via satellite on PBS. ?This and similar experiences in medical journalism persuaded him to become a physician. ?
