My work focuses on epidemiology, marketing, and policy issues in tobacco control, particularly in regards to the contentious debate over the use of tobacco products (e.g., snus, electronic cigarettes) for harm reduction. I have also maintained an ongoing interest in the epidemiology of the co-use of tobacco and cannabis, mainly in the form of blunt smoking. More recently, this interest has extended to the retail availability of tobacco products that are used with cannabis (e.g., cigarillos), as well as the promotion of non-tobacco alternatives (e.g., hemp wraps).
