Jack Tsai Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Psychiatry
My work is focused mainly on health services research of three different, but often related populations: adults with severe mental illness, American military veterans, and chronically homeless adults. I seek to improve understanding of mental illnesses like schizophrenia, posttraumatic stress disorder, and substance use disorders. I am interested in improving health services through program evaluation, testing new interventions, and finding explanatory variables for individual differences in outcomes.
