Prof Janet Hoek

Janet’s first degrees were in English Literature and she also studied Botany, Zoology, Microbiology, and French. Her Honours research examined nineteenth century poetry and she explored irony Beowulf, a very early medieval poem, in her Masterate thesis. She later completed a post-graduate diploma in marketing and her PhD examined question wording effects in surveys. Janet’s is co-Director of ASPIRE Aotearoa, a University of Otago Research Theme whose members undertake research supporting the Government’s smokefree 2025 goal.

Janet has led several Health Research Council projects. Her work has examined plain (or standardised) packaging and tobacco branding, and informed policy in New Zealand and internationally; a subsequent study project examined novel on-pack tobacco warnings. She led a feasibility study assessing ‘smart’ e-cigarettes and is currently project examining how to encourage full transition from smoking to e-cigarettes among smokers while deterring uptake among non-smokers. Janet has been an AI on HRC-funded obesity studies, including a novel project – Kids’ Cam – that examines food marketing in children’s environments.

Along with several public health colleagues and key external partners, Janet has received funding for an HRC programme: Whakahā o Te Pā Harakeke (Realising the vision for a smokefree future), and a further project, which will examine interventions to promote and support cessation among RYO users. Janet has also received funding from the Royal Society Marsden Fund; she led a project that critically evaluated tobacco industry arguments framing smoking as an “informed choice”. Janet is currently leading a second Marsden study probing identity shifts as smokers adopt vaping and potentially become both smoke- and vape-free.

Janet has been a member of several NGO and government advisory groups, provided evidence to government and Select Committees, and was a member of an Australian government expert advisory group overseeing the introduction of plain packaging. She has sat on several research grant and selection committees, as well as strategy development and policy groups. She was Deputy Chair of the 2018 PBRF Business and Economics panel.
