Research Interests: Global issues in tobacco reduction, smoking cessation, treatment of medically compromised smokers
Harry Lando received his Ph.D. in psychology from Stanford University. His principal research interests are in global tobacco reduction; smoking intervention, including intervention in medically compromised and high-risk populations; and public policy changes relevant to smoking. He co-teaches a course on prevention and control of tobacco and alcohol problems and co-teaches a doctoral seminar series on principles of human behavior.
