Project Description

Assistive technologies are any technologies that serve to enable independence, rehabilitation, or treatment of particular symptoms or difficulties (related to both physical and mental health). Getting people to engage with, and adhere to using these technologies can be a problem, despite their utility. This PhD would explore how techniques from social psychology (for example, priming, the question-behaviour effect, implementation intentions, and self-affirmation) might be used to produce better engagement and adherence with assistive technologies.

Funding Notes

Requirements: We ask for a good honours degree of 2:1 or above and generally a masters or pending masters (merit or distinction) in Psychology or a related discipline.
