    Collapse Overview
    Eileen Le Han is a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education at UCSF. She is interested in using tobacco industry documents and social media to study the marketing strategies of tobacco products, old and new. She is also interested in looking at using different types of authorities and expertise in shaping the scientific discourse about tobacco-related products and health issues. Recently, she is looking at the impact of misinformation about tobacco-related products and policies and the inequitable access to information on Asian Americans.

    She received her PhD in Communication from the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania. During and after her PhD studies, she mainly conducted qualitative research about social media, with a focus on collective memory and social activism. She published a book about social media and collective memory in China, which was an expansion of her dissertation research. Since then, she has been expanding her research to look at social media in many other contexts, including health and medicine, in which she is primarily interested in the use and understanding of expertise and authority in the digital age. She also received a MS degree in Information from the University of Michigan, where she had trainings in library science.
