Hollie L. Tripp earned her Ph.D. in Public Policy from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. She researches individual decision-making behavior and government actions to conduct evaluations of public health policies. For example, she evaluated the Affordable Care Act by using qualitative research to explore how individuals navigated the marketplaces and quantitative research of how state variation of those websites affected user experience. Presently, she is using Amazon Mechanical Turk, a crowdsourcing platform, to understand how individuals make risky decisions about uncertain health outcomes. This study is being used to better understand individual responses to cigarette warning labels and inform tobacco regulations.
