Visiting Senior Researcher
Wendy Hardeman is a Senior Lecturer in Health Psychology, School of Health Sciences, University of East Anglia and Visiting Researcher at the Primary Care Unit. She was previously a Senior Research Associate in Behavioural Science in the Behavioural Science Group.
Wendy’s research uses methods, theory and evidence from health psychology and behavioural science to translate research evidence into clinical practice and policy. Her research focuses on the development and trial evaluation of behaviour change interventions to prevent and manage long-term conditions such as type 2 diabetes. Her interests include very brief and scalable interventions to promote physical activity (http://tiny.cc/VBIprog), the use of mobile health technologies to support behaviour change, the Behaviour Change Technique Taxonomy v1, intervention fidelity, and process evaluation of complex interventions.
Wendy obtained a PhD from the University of Cambridge on the application of psychological theory and evidence to the development and evaluation of behaviour change programmes. She also has an MSc in Human Movement Sciences from VU University Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Wendy is Associate Editor of the British Journal of Health Psychology.
