Research and Teaching Interests

Dr. Thrasher’s research focuses on how media and policies influence tobacco- and nutrition-related perceptions and behaviors.  His projects are generally international in scope and often assess the consistency of media and policy effects across different sociocultural contexts.  He teaches courses on public health policy, advocacy, and communications.
