Tobacco control policy, smoking cessation
Focus of research

As part of the SILNE project (smoking inequalities: learning from natural experiments), I will investigate, through the evaluation of natural policy experiments, which types of tobacco control policies have increased smoking cessation rates in general, and in particular those of lower socio-economic status groups. For this purpose I will combine comparing policies over time in national-level studies and comparing policies between countries on the European-level.
