Dr. Cornacchione Ross is a communication scientist whose research is focused on tobacco prevention and control and health disparities in the area of tobacco regulatory science to understand and decrease non-cigarette tobacco product use among adolescents and young adults. With expertise in persuasion, health communication, and communication theory, her research uses communication theory to first develop, and then test, effective messages to discourage use of tobacco.

Relevant research activities include her role as Principal Investigator of an NCI-funded study to develop and test pictorial warnings for cigarillos. Dr. Cornacchione Ross also serves as a co-investigator on several externally- and internally-funded projects, including an NIH/FDA-funded Tobacco Center of Regulatory Science (Center for Regulatory Research on Tobacco Communication), an NCI-funded study to assess health claims in vape shops, and a project funded by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services to evaluate and support the North Carolina Substance Abuse Prevention System.
