Graeme Peterson

PhD Candidate in Health Policy (G2, Economics)

Graeme Peterson graduated from Duke University in 2017 with a major in public policy. As an undergraduate, he conducted research on end-of-life care and studied the relationship between hospital market concentration and premiums in the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) Health Insurance Marketplaces under the direction of Don Taylor. Prior to beginning the Health Policy PhD program, he worked in the Public Health Economics Program at RTI International and later joined the Urban Institute’s Health Policy Center. There, he contributed to projects related to Medicaid expansions and the ACA, Medicare delivery system reforms, and the effects of hospital closures. His primary research interests lie in health care market organization, especially hospital and physician behavior, and the ways in which contemporary and historic racial discrimination in the health care system affect individual health and health behaviors.
