Bio

Originally from Stockholm, Sweden, Olga Perski obtained a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and Philosophy at the University of Bristol in 2014 and an MSc in Health Psychology at University College London in 2015. Due to a keen interest in the role of technology within health promotion and behaviour change, Olga sought the opportunity to write her MSc thesis about patterns of “engagement” with a novel smoking cessation smartphone application, which was awarded the British Psychological Society’s prize for Outstanding Thesis in MSc Health Psychology. Funded by Bupa under its partnership with University College London, Olga started her PhD in 2015 under the supervision of Professor Susan Michie, Professor Ann Blandford and Professor Robert West. Her PhD research is focused on the conceptualisation, measurement and promotion of “engagement” with digital behaviour change interventions, with a specific focus on smoking cessation and alcohol reduction smartphone applications.
