He is also affiliated with Maastricht University, University College London, and the University of Edinburgh. His main research areas are tobacco addiction (effectiveness of behavioural and pharmacological treatments), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (prediction modelling, early detection, prevention) and clinical epidemiology (research methodology and reporting). In the field of tobacco addiction he is currently leading a 5-year research program entitled "Treating tobacco addiction: new clinical approaches" and a cluster-RCT entitled “Training general practitioners in brief stop-smoking advice”. He is also co-investigator of an effectiveness-implementation of tobacco cessation within TB programmes. Prof Kotz is Associate Editor of the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology and Senior Editor of Addiction. He previously served SRNT in his role of SRNT-E board member from 2009-2012 and as co-chair of the SRNT conference in Florence in 2017.

President Elect

Lion Shahab

Email: lion.shahab@ucl.ac.uk

Website

Lion Shahab is an Associate Professor  in Health Psychology. After graduating from the University of Oxford in psychology, philosophy and physiology in 2003, he gained an MRC-funded masters in health psychology from the Institute of Psychiatry in 2004 and went on to complete an MRC-funded PhD in 2008 on the role of smoking-related biomarkers in smoking cessation under the supervision of Professor Robert West at UCL. While working as a research associate in the Health Behaviour Research Centre, he also completed a masters in neuroscience and gained his Stage II training qualification in health psychology at UCL under the supervision of Professor Susan Michie. In 2011 he took up a lectureship in health psychology and continues his research into different aspects of tobacco use, more recently expanding into other health behaviours and mouse models of Alzheimer's disease.

 

Honorary Secretary

Marcus Munafo

Email: marcus.munafo@bristol.ac.uk

Website

Marcus Munafo is Professor of Biological Psychology at the School of Experimental Psychology, University of Bristol. Prof Munafò’s research focuses on understanding pathways into, and the consequences of, health behaviours and mental health, with a particular focus on tobacco and alcohol use. This work includes: 1) observational and genetic epidemiology, and the use of a range of methods that enable stronger causal inference from observational data, such as negative control and Mendelian randomization methods; 2) the laboratory study of cognitive and neurobiological mechanistic pathways that underpin exposure-outcome relationships; and 3) the development of novel individual- and population-level interventions that target these mechanisms, including choice architecture interventions. This work has informed ongoing policy debates, such as the introduction of standardised (“plain”) packaging for tobacco products. He also has interests in the role of incentive structures in science, and the extent to which these shape the robustness and reproducibility of scientific research.

 

Secretary

Leon Kosmider

Email:  lkosmider@vcu.edu

Website

Leon Kosmider is Assisstant Professor and Technical Director of the Bioanalytical Shared Resource Lab at the School of Pharmacy of the Virginia Commonwealth University.

 

Treasurer

Lynne Dawkins

Email: dawkinl3@lsbu.ac.uk

Website

Lynne Dawkins is an Associate Professor of Psychology at the School of Applied Science of London South Bank University. She has worked in the field of nicotine and tobacco research for 20 years and was among the first to demonstrate specific abstinence-related cognitive and motivational impairments in smokers, to map trajectories of recovery, and predictive utility for cessation. In part of her research she pioneered in the field of e-cigarettes describing user profiles and patterns of use; effects on cigarette craving/withdrawal symptoms; device characteristics and comparisons; puffing topographies, and pharmacokinetic profiles. This work has fed into UK Tobacco Control Policy. Dr Dawkins is currently in receipt of CRUK funding to explore effects of nicotine e-liquid concentrations on puffing patterns and carbonyl exposure and effects of the TPD E-cigarette warning labels on risk perceptions/intentions to use.

 

Communications Officer

Mirte Kuipers

Email: m.a.kuipers@amc.uva.nl

Website

Mirte Kuipers is a postdoc researcher at the Academic Medical Center – University of Amsterdam. She is also affiliated with University College London. In her research Dr Kuipers studies the effectiveness of tobacco control policies on smoking behaviour. She is involved in research in the Netherlands, the UK, and in the wider European context. In her PhD project, completed in 2016, she focused on tobacco control policy effectiveness in young people, in particular among lower socioeconomic groups. During her PhD Dr Kuipers worked on the European SILNE project and she is currently part of the coordinating team of its sequel, the SILNE-R project. Her current research mainly focuses on policies that restrict the visibility and accessibility of tobacco.
