Nan Jiang, PhD

Assistant Professor, Department of Population Health


Nan Jiang, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Population Health at NYU School of Medicine. With more than a decade of experience in tobacco-related research, my research has primarily focused on tobacco marketing, policy, and psychosocial determinants of tobacco use. My current research focuses on reducing tobacco-related health disparities among disadvantaged populations. I investigate the approach of using social media and health communication strategies to facilitate tobacco cessation among Chinese immigrants, and explore the strategies to optimize the implementation process of federally mandated smoke-free policy in public housing.

Prior to joining the faculty at NYU School of Medicine, I spent 3 years working as a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Hong Kong's School of Public Health, where I served as PI on several research studies that investigated e-cigarette marketing and social determinants of e-cigarette use in Hong Kong and mainland China. I received BS in Nursing from Peking Union Medical College in China, and MS in Health Promotion and PhD in Health Behavior from Indiana University. I completed postdoctoral training in the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education at University of California San Francisco.
