My research focuses on healthy psychology and around processes of behaviour change within individuals. This work generally involves relatively intensive monitoring of behaviour and behavioural determinants using various digital devices and paper-based diaries, looking to detect the timing of (short-lived or sustained) behaviour, and whether its determinants are similar or different across individuals. My current work on the Strategic Research Programme addresses how dietary habits are established and develop over time, with a focus on sugar-related food and drink, and starchy carbohydrates.
My other research interests include self-regulatory fatigue, health professional behaviour, symptom variability, and stress in the workplace.
