The School of Experimental Psychology is pleased to announce the appointment of Lucy Yardley, Professor of Health Psychology.

Lucy’s main research focus is on using the internet to support self-management of health, by developing and evaluating interventions to support health promotion. For example, weight management, physical activity, reduction of infection transmission and antibiotic over-use, and self-management of numerous long-term health conditions (including cancer, hypertension, diabetes, back pain, asthma, and cognitive decline).

Lucy has joined us from the University of Oxford, while retaining a half-time role at the University of Southampton as Director of the LifeGuide Research Programme and the Behavioural Science theme of the University of Southampton NIHR Biomedical Research Centre.
