Marissa Hall uses behavioral science to inform policies to prevent cancer and other chronic diseases. Much of her research focuses on the impact of pictorial tobacco product warnings on both intended and unintended outcomes. She is also leading several experiments to examine the impact of obesity prevention policies such as sugar-sweetened beverage health warnings and taxes, with a focus on preventing childhood obesity among Latino populations.
