Dr. Daniel Owusu is a postdoctoral research associate with the Tobacco Center of Regulatory Science at the School of Public Health at Georgia State University.

During his doctoral program and prior to joining the School, Dr. Owusu’s strong interest in tobacco control motivated him to undertake an internship with the World Health Organization African Region office to work on tobacco control. He completed his dissertation on tobacco smoking cessation in low-and-middle income countries. Additionally, he has contributed to several tobacco control projects including the Regional Population Health Improvement Plan (PHIP) for tobacco cessation in Northeast Tennessee.

He is a key collaborator of the Tobacco Policy Research Group (TPRG) in ETSU, and a member of the Sub-Sahara Tobacco Policy Research Group (SATRG). He has peer-reviewed journal publications that focused on tobacco, genetics, cancer and diabetes. Daniel is currently focusing on risk communication and consumer perception of risk of novel and alternative tobacco products.
