T. Greg Rhee, Ph.D., M.S.W.
Assistant Professor
Population-based clinical outcomes research and health care policy

I am a psychiatric epidemiologist and mental health services researcher studying the access to care, quality of care, and clinical and patient-reported outcomes in patients with psychiatric or substance use disorders. My current research focuses on affective disorders (e.g., depression and bipolar disorder), suicidality, cannabis use disorder, and opioid use disorder among other conditions. My expertise is grounded in population-based observational studies using large databases to characterize unmet needs and national practice patterns in the assessment and management of behavioral health conditions. I also investigate long-term comparative effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions for psychiatric and substance use disorders.

I am an accredited professional statistician (PStat®) certified by the American Statistical Association. I have extensive knowledge and experience with administrative claims data (e.g., Medicare and Medicaid), national health and healthcare survey data, and other data sources including electronic health records, clinical trial data, and mortality data. I have served as a senior statistician and/or data analyst in 100+ peer-reviewed research articles in highly respected medical, psychiatric, and healthcare policy journals, such as American Journal of Psychiatry, JAMA Internal Medicine, and JAMA Psychiatry. I have also been a successful Principal Investigator or Co-Investigator on multiple research projects funded by major federal agencies, including Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and National Institutes of Health (NIH).
