Project Summary

In recent years, we have seen increased use of electronic cigarettes and hookah, and there is currently a need to understand more about the use experience of these tobacco products. This project focuses on investigating the motivations, contexts and effects of tobacco use, particularly from social media sources, and employing text mining and visualization techniques. This work is in collaboration with the University of Utah and the University of California, San Diego.
