Dr Ross MacKenzie, Faculty of Human Sciences
Dr Ross MacKenzie received his PhD from the University of London. His main research interest is the impact of trade liberalisation on health, specifically focusing on the global strategies and operations of transnational tobacco corporations.
He is currently involved in an international research project funded by the National Institutes of Health that is investigating tobacco industry influence on trade and investment policy, illicit trade in tobacco, and ways in which corporations can be governed within a global economy.
Publications in leading health and medical journals include analyses of the tobacco industry, media coverage of health, and the medicalisation of smoking cessation.
