Welcome to my site. I am an Associate Professor in the Departments of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and Population Health, New York University School of Medicine, and a Research Scientist at the Nathan S. Kline Institute for Psychiatric Research. I received my PhD in Biostatistics from Columbia University in 2006. The following sources of support for my research are gratefully acknowledged: National Institute of Mental Health grant 1 F31 MH73379-01 A1 (Jun. 16, 2005-July 31, 2006); National Science Foundation grant DMS-0907017 (Aug. 1, 2009-July 31, 2012); National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering grant 1R01EB009744-01A (PI Ogden) (July 1, 2010-March 1, 2013); National Institute of Mental Health grant 1R01MH095836-01A1 (Aug. 1, 2012-Apr. 30, 2017). My primary department at NYU is also known as the Child Study Center; for further information about me, please see my page on the Child Study Center website, at http://www.aboutourkids.org/about_us/staff/research_faculty/philip_reiss NEWS: Our group at NYU is currently seeking a Master's-level research assistant. Please contact me for further details.
