I am a research assistant working on the Human Behaviour Change Project, at the Centre for Behaviour Change at UCL.

We aim to make easier for researchers, policy makers and practitioners to make use of behaviour change literature – which is vast and often reported inconsistently. We are developing an ontology to organise evidence (a framework of different concepts and the relationships between them) and creating an automated system that will instantly report back relevant, synthesised knowledge when queried.

I have an MSc in Health Psychology from UCL and my research examined health literacy in older adults, in relation to childhood and adulthood socioeconomic position. I am interested in theory-based approaches to health behaviour and in understanding and reducing health inequalities.

I am delighted to contribute to the InSPIre the Mind blog, having thoroughly enjoyed the engaging articles produced.
