Research Interests

I am a behavioral scientist with expertise in the design and evaluation of policy solutions to improve health. Much of my research focuses on the impact of graphic cigarette pack warnings on both intended and unintended outcomes. A new line of my research focuses on evaluating the impact of front-of-package food labels.
