Research Summary

Director of UCL's Centre for Behaviour Change and its Health Psychology Research Group, studying behaviour change in relation to health: how to understand it theoretically and how to develop more effective interventions.  Developing methods to advance the study of behaviour change e.g. for specifying the content and theoretical underpinning of interventions and for synthesising evidence. This is conducted in the domains of risky and preventive behaviours amongst the general population (e.g. smoking, physical activity, preparing for pandemic flu) and professional practice and implementation (e.g. the implementation of evidence-based guidelines, such as for hand-hygiene amongst hospital staff). Address how to improve the reporting of behavioural interventions in order to facilitate replication and evidence syntheses (and therefore evidence of effectiveness), and how to link intervention content with theory to further our understanding of causal mechanisms.
