I am a research professor with diverse research interests in the areas of health and social psychology. My main focus is the social processes involved in people’s "self-regulation" of social and health behaviour. I am interested in how psychological factors such as attitudes, intentions, self-control, action plans, and motives affect their behaviour and what health professionals can do to change health-related behaviour. My research applies social cognitive and motivational theories to understand and to intervene and change diverse health behaviours such as physical activity, eating a healthy diet, smoking cessation, alcohol reduction, anti-doping behaviours in sport, and medication adherence. I am the Director of the Health Psychology and Behavioural Medicine Research Group at Curtin University. I am also editor-in-chief of Health Psychology Review and Stress and Health and editorial board member of eight other international peer-reviewed journals.

My principal research collaborator is Dr. Nikos Chatzisarantis (also at Curtin University) along with other members of the HPBM team. I also have research collaborators in Australia, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Turkey, the United States, and, of course, the United Kingdom.
