About us

Our research aims to better understand the determinants of health and wellbeing in the context of key public health issues. We strive to guide the development, refinement, and testing of novel and innovative interdisciplinary health behaviour-change interventions.

We have drawn over £7 million from external funders (MRC, ESRC, EPSRC, NIHR) and generated over 350 research papers. We undertake roles on boards, panels, and advisory groups to help us achieve wide reaching and notable impact.
