Caroline Cobb, Ph.D.

I earned my bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in the spring of 2014. After graduating, I worked as a research assistant at UWW with Sasha Karnes, Ph.D., and Michael Oldani, Ph.D. I also worked as a research assistant with the American Lung Association of Wisconsin. I am currently working as a graduate research assistant under Caroline Cobb, Ph.D., with the Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth. My research interests include electronic cigarettes, e-cigarette advertising, cannabis use among young adults and cannabis policy.
