Michal Stoklosa, MA

Senior Economist, Taxation and Health

Michal received his M.A. in Managerial Economics from the University of Warsaw in 2009 and his M.A. in Economics from the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies, Georgia State University in 2013. He also earned his Certificate in Global Tobacco Control at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins University in 2009. Michal’s research focuses primarily on the economics of tobacco control and addresses issues including tax policy, the global illicit cigarette trade, and tobacco industry interference in tobacco control efforts. As economic arguments have become increasingly important to the formulation of health policies, Michal’s research projects aim to provide governments and health advocates with credible economic evidence to support health policy change. His most recent research interests include the taxation of e-cigarettes.

Prior to joining the American Cancer Society in 2010, Michal worked in the National Institute of Public Health in Poland. He has also been invited to take part in projects funded by, among others, the World Health Organization, the European Commission, Bloomberg Philanthropies, World Lung Foundation and the U.S. National Institutes of Health. Michal has published in numerous peer-reviewed journals and co-authored book chapters and health policy reports, including seven chapters in the fifth edition of The Tobacco Atlas. His research has played an influential role during the adoption of tobacco control policies across the globe, particularly in Central and Eastern European countries.
