Dr. Jennifer Ellis, Ph.D.

Jennifer Ellis is a licensed clinical psychologist and postdoctoral research fellow. Her research focuses on optimizing opioid use disorder (OUD) treatment for individuals presenting with co-occurring symptoms, such as major depressive disorder, insomnia, chronic pain, or PTSD. She uses person-centered statistical approaches (e.g., LCA, GMM) to explore 1) whether patients with OUD can be classified into clinically meaningful subgroups based on patterns of co-occurring symptoms and symptom trajectories, and 2) whether these subgroups differ with regard to risk factors and treatment outcomes. She is also interested in improving OUD treatment for underserved and marginalized groups.
