The founding Dean of the School of Public Health at Georgia State University, Professor Eriksen has led the university’s public health program since 2002. Eriksen has published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles and is co-author of all five editions of The Tobacco Atlas.

Eriksen is the lead researcher on one of 14 Tobacco Centers of Regulatory Science (TCORS) funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Food and Drug Administration. Georgia State, with its partners, the University of Illinois at Chicago and RTI International, focus on a particularly important and often overlooked aspect of regulatory science—the understanding of human decision-making around the use of tobacco. The Georgia State TCORS examines human economic behavior, consumer reaction to tobacco marketing and individual perception of risk of using novel tobacco products. He serves on the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation Board of Directors and is editor-in-chief of the public health journal Health Education Research. During his time at CDC, Eriksen was the longest-serving Director of the Office on Smoking and Health where he played a leadership role in developing tobacco control policy for the United States.
