Ben's research is focused around developing and evaluating psychological and behaviour change interventions for people with physical and mental health conditions. He has several key areas of interest:
1. Using experimental psychology to understand psychological mechanisms that are related to worse health outcomes, especially for people with respiratory disease.
2. Using the person-based approach (PBA) to understand key behavioural issues for target populations, and develop (digital) interventions to address them.
3. Use cutting-edge models of 'engagement' to understand why and how people use digital technology, and how it can be effectively implemented within healthcare settings.
