Dr Ingrid Muller is a Health Psychologist and Associate Professor in the Primary Care Research Centre, Faculty of Medicine. She co-leads the behavioural science research group.
Her research involves applying behavioural science to understand and develop interventions aimed at improving health and well-being. Dr Muller has developed and evaluated complex behavioural interventions to support people self-managing long-term conditions including eczema, acne, allergy, diabetes and chronic dizziness. Much of her work has focused on young people and families, and enhancing accessibility and support for people with low health literacy. Dr Muller co-created the Person-Based Approach to intervention development, which uses mixed methods to develop interventions which are engaging, accessible and motivating for end users. This methodology has been used internationally to develop successful, high impact interventions. Methodolical expertise includes qualitative research, RCTs, systematic reviewing and process evaluations.
