Researcher in Alcohol Policy, Kobe University

I am an addiction, chronic disease, and legal epidemiologist. I've published on a variety of topics included alcohol marketing, the role of social media, and health policy topics.

A good research question should have real-world implications, and potentially upsetting someone is not a legitimate reason to not conduct a study.
