Professor Antony Moss, Deputy Director of PHIRST South Bank
Professor Tony Moss is Deputy Director of PHIRST London, Professor of Addictive Behaviour Science and Associate Pro Vice Chancellor Education and Student Experience.
Tony’s research interests are primarily focused on the public health aspects of addiction. Connecting both his research and learning and teaching roles is a passion for understanding and promoting inclusivity and equality.
Tony’s particular research interest is on understanding the needs of individuals who experience harms from substances and behaviours which we generally think of as being ‘addictive’. Addiction is generally thought about as an all-or-nothing condition – you are either addicted to something or not. In reality, many people can experience harms from substances and activities such as alcohol and gambling, and this harm exists along a broad spectrum. He is interested in understanding how we can both help people to recognise the harms that can arise, but also exploring better ways of supporting people who do experience those harms.
