Tiffany Radcliff, PhD, professor and associate dean of research at the Texas A&M University School of Public Health, has been selected as a recipient of a Chancellor’s Research Initiative “EDGES” Award. This initiative was created in 2013 to recruit the brightest minds to Texas A&M University and Prairie View A&M University and expanded in 2019 to retain The Texas A&M University System’s best faculty engaged in research.

As associate dean for research, Radcliff heads the Office of Research at the School of Public Health, serves as a member of the University Research Council (URC), and is on the URC’s Executive Committee. Her research expertise is in health economics and health services research, including secondary data analysis and use of novel methodology to improve measurement of care processes, access and outcomes for vulnerable populations such as older adults, veterans and rural residents. Radcliff is an affiliated investigator for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Emergency Management and Evaluation Center (VEMEC) at the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System and VA Eastern Colorado Healthcare System. Her research appears in top medical and public health journals and her publications have been cited more than 2,100 times. She teaches graduate-level courses in health economics and serves on a variety of committees, boards and advisory groups, including the Texas A&M Emergency Management Advisory Group (TEMAG) and Scientific Merit Review Board (SMRB) for the VA’s Health Services Research & Development Service.

“Dr. Radcliff is a driving force for School of Public Health research. She leads by example, as both a stellar researcher and an innovative administrator as the Associate Dean for Research,” according to Dean Shawn Gibbs of the School of Public Health. “She is always looking for those connections and collaborations that will push her work and the research of others in the School of Public Health to the next level.”

Radcliff received a PhD in health services research, policy and administration from the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. Prior to joining the faculty at Texas A&M, she held faculty positions at the University of Florida and University of Colorado.
