Biography

Ban Majeed is a post-doctoral research fellow with the Tobacco Centers of Regulatory Science (TCORS) at the School of Public Health. Her research is focused on the epidemiology of electronic vapor products also known as electronic cigarettes. She is interested in translating theory into practice to develop and test measures to assess risk perceptions pertaining to the use of alternative tobacco products, e-cigarettes, water pipes, and little cigars and cigarillos, among adults.

TCORS funded her to study reasons for experimentation and initiation of e-cigarette use among young adults, and to investigate how the general public interpret the proposed warning label on e-cigarettes. She uses qualitative and quantitative research methods to answer these research questions.

Prior to joining the TCORS team, Ban worked at the Center for Global Health of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and served as the project manager of the Iraq-Field Epidemiology Training Program. The program was a collaboration of CDC, and the Ministry of Health, and the regional office of the World Health Organization.
