Expert on the economics of health care management


Matthew Grennan joins the Haas School of Business in July 2021 as an Associate Professor of Economics Analysis and Policy and Faculty Director of the Biology + Business program. He comes to Haas from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, where served as an assistant professor since 2013. He is also a Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research and a Senior Fellow at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics.

Grennan studies health care management using empirical and theoretical models from economics. His recent work examines how complexities such as imperfect information, misaligned stakeholders, new technology, and government regulation interact to affect the cost and quality of health care. Grennan’s research relates closely to his teaching in health care entrepreneurship, health care data analytics, and medical technology strategy. It also informs recent business and public policy debates regarding price transparency, market power, and FDA regulation of new products in the health care sector.

Grennan has received teaching awards from Wharton, Toronto (Rotman), and Poets & Quants. His research has been published in the top general interest journals in economics, management, and public policy, including the American Economic Review, Management Science, and Health Affairs. His work has been funded through leading institutions such as the National Science Foundation and National Institute for Health Care Management.
