Tobacco control and adolescents' smoking behaviour

Focus of research

I am a PhD candidate on the project Tobacco out of Sight. This project studies the implementation of the tobacco display and advertising ban at the Dutch point of sale and its impact on adolescents' smoking behaviour and cognitions.

Within the project, we use Global Information System (GIS) software to map tobacco outlets in the Netherlands, to perform geographic analyses, and to measure adolescents' exposure to these outlets.
