      Collapse Overview
      My research interests are as follows:

      - The use of human rights arguments to strengthen tobacco-free initiatives at the global policy level (e.g. WHO)
      - The use of human rights and ethical arguments for more inclusive tobacco control advocacy, e.g. with young people and other groups commonly targeted by the tobacco industry
      - Ways in which the tobacco industry and its front groups have used human rights, 'free choice' and other arguments to delay or undermine regulations on tobacco
      - Human rights and ethical aspects of tobacco industry practice
      - Human rights and ethical aspects of various tobacco control interventions
      - New approaches to tobacco control, e.g. tobacco endgames, tobacco harm reduction
