Ali Jalali, Ph.D.

About me:

I am a health economist. I will be joining the Department of Healthcare Policy & Research, Division of Comparative Effectiveness and Outcomes Research at Weill Cornell Medicine, Cornell University as a Postdoctoral Associate in August 2019. I also hold a research affiliation with the VA Health Services Research and Development Service (HSR&D).

My research interests include the social determinants of health and healthcare utilization, economic dimensions of substance use disorders, and the societal burden of preterm births and genetic diseases. I have also researched the impact of bundled payment reforms on physician consolidation, the provision of adequate surgical care in lower and middle-income countries, and cost-effectiveness analysis of orphan drugs.
