Focus of the project

My research will focus on the design of lifestyle interventions (WP3). With my background as human movement scientist, I am specifically interested in the promotion of physical activity and the maintenance of an active lifestyle. I will use new digital technologies (such as sensors, wearables, VR) and behavior change techniques from psychology and behavioral science to design lifestyle interventions that allows users to develop new habits, improve their self-management and self-efficacy, and will result in a sustainable change in lifestyle.

Key research question

How can we design dynamic and context-aware lifestyle interventions that improve physical activity behavior for people with an unhealthy lifestyle?

How can we improve awareness of an unhealthy lifestyle in people with low socioeconomic status?
