Theory-Based Behavior Change Interventions

 

Development of Theory-Based Behavior Change Interventions

 

Development of Theory-Based Behavior Change Interventions. Alongside theory testing and development, I also focus on leveraging these theoretical insights to develop effective health behavior change interventions. I am currently involved in multiple grant-funded projects aimed at developing, implementing, and evaluating theory-based behavior change interventions in multiple contexts, populations, and behaviors.
