Katie East awarded SSA Academic Fellowship
The SSA is delighted to announce that Dr Katie East has been awarded the 2021 Griffith Edwards Academic Fellowship. Katie’s fellowship will look at the factors that influence young adults’ perceptions of vaping harms and how those perceptions can be modified. Katie will analyse population-level survey data, vaping messaging from health organisations and governments and longitudinal data to understand how inaccurate harm perceptions are formed and how they might then be changed.
Katie has previously researched smoking and vaping norms and specialises in analysing population-level data. She is currently based at King’s College London and at the University of Waterloo.
