Throughout her research career, Rosemary has been working in the field of health inequalities.  Smoking is one of the leading causes of inequalities of health and Rosemary’s current research focusses on tobacco control.   As part of the STOP project, Rosemary is currently working on tobacco industry supply chains encompassing study of struggling farmers in low and middle income countries and study of transnational companies.

Rosemary’s  tobacco sales data projects contributed to evaluation of the effectiveness of standardised packaging and tobacco taxation and understanding of their implications for health inequalities. Her work also contributed to an understanding of tobacco industry attempts undermine the 2020 ban on menthol cigarettes.

Rosemary has previously explored the relationship between health inequalities and smoking through a review of international evidence on socioeconomic status and smoking, statistical analysis of English smoking prevalence by socio economic status and region and evaluations of the UK Stop Smoking Services including study of socioeconomic status and e-cigarettes.

Rosemary also has an interest in wellbeing. She added a ‘wellbeing’ element to a prospective study of long term outcomes of the English Stop Smoking Services. Previously Rosemary has studied the impact of climate change on urban environments and wellbeing.

Other former work has united Rosemary’s interests in health inequalities and the environment in terms of housing, neighbourhood, air pollution and transport.
