Eleni is a behavioural scientist interested in developing and evaluating population and individual-level interventions for changing health-related behaviours that are linked to the development of non-communicable diseases. Her current work in the Behaviour Change by Design programme mainly focuses on evaluating interventions that involve altering aspects of the physical environment to change behaviour, including the use of portion and package size and labelling interventions for reducing food and drink consumption.
Eleni has a PhD in Health Psychology, which aimed to assess the use of financial incentives for changing health-related behaviours.
- Interventions that involve altering aspects of the physical environment to cue changes in health-related behaviour
- Interventions for increasing public acceptability of government policies aimed at improving populational and planetary health
- Systematic reviews of interventions to change health-related behaviour
