Daniel Cook, Ph.D.

Associate Professor, School of Community Health Sciences

Ph.D. in Political Science, City University of New York

B.A. in Politics, New York University

I study the politics of health and safety regulations, with a focus on the role of the private sector in public policy. Specific research topics have included tobacco control, drug safety, and the politics of science. I conduct qualitative analysis of archived documents while seeking a better understanding of structural inequality and how stakeholders interact with government and public health. I also contribute to multi-disciplinary teams to discover the implications of health science research for social justice and public policy.
