Jamie Tam is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Health Management and Policy at the University of Michigan, where she also received an MPH. As a junior investigator with the Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network (CISNET) lung consortium, she is involved in work that simulates the effects of tobacco control policies on smoking and mortality outcomes. She received a BS in Biology from Stanford University and has previously served at the FDA Center for Tobacco Products and the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. Ms. Tam's current dissertation work uses complex systems modeling methods to consider the relationship between smoking and mental illness and its implications for mortality and treatment outcomes. Her research broadly aims to investigate tobacco use disparities and the policy and treatment strategies to address them.
