Research project: UBhave

Currently Active: 
Yes

UBhave is a project that received funding of £1.5 million from EPSRC to promote cross-disciplinary research. Our aim is to investigate the power and challenges of using mobile phones and social networking for Digital Behaviour Change Interventions (DBCIs), and to contribute to creating a scientific foundation for digitally supported behaviour change.

This project is associated with the LifeGuide, EmotionSense, and My Personality  projects.

Work packages:

  1. How do users interact with mobile behaviour change interventions? What features and elements promote effective engagement?
  2. How can mobile phones collect data accurately about human behaviour and efficiently support real-time feedback for DBCIs?
  3. What are the implications of delivering DBCIs through online social networks?
  4. How can data from real-time sensing and social networks be integrated effectively into DBCIs
