Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I am the principal investigator of a CA State funded grant (Tobacco-Related Disease Research Program) focusing on a citywide smokefree multiunit housing
ordinance implemented in a diversity-rich urban community. I have been a principal investigator or a co-investigator on a number of projects. My prior tobacco-related research experience includes community-based participatory research projects and focus group studies on tobacco use and cessation among vulnerable populations, such as low-income, African American, and older smokers.
