Dr Carmen Lefevre - CBC Co-ordinator, UCL Centre for Behaviour Change
Carmen is a Research Associate and the Research Lead at the UCL Centre for Behaviour Change (CBC). She works on a number of projects looking at applying evidence-based behaviour change theories and techniques to real world problems. For example, she is currently involved in the Horizon 2020 City4Age project aiming to utilise digital technology to prolong independent living in older adults and works on improving people’s online security behaviour. In addition, Carmen is interested in theoretical behavioural science research, currently working on understanding commonalities between existing behaviour change theories.
Dr Ildiko Tombor – Research Associate, UCL Health Behaviour Research Centre
Ildiko’s background is in Health Psychology and her main research interests focus on behaviour change. More recently, she has been working on the development and optimisation of a smoking cessation smartphone app for pregnant smokers. Ildiko also works part-time at Public Health England where she advises on the design and development of digital behaviour change interventions.
David Crane - PhD student, UCL Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology
David’s background is in web and app development. Prior to starting his PhD he created the very successful smoking cessation app, Smoke Free, for his MSc thesis. His research focusses on evaluating the behaviour change techniques that might help people reduce their consumption of alcohol. In particular, he is evaluating the effectiveness of self-monitoring, feedback and action planning in an app called Drink Less.
Claire Garnett – PhD student, UCL Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology
Claire’s research interests focus on behaviour change and the development and evaluation of digital interventions. Her PhD thesis was submitted for examination in October and focuses on the development of ‘Drink Less’ – a smartphone app based on theory and evidence for reducing excessive alcohol consumption – and its evaluation in a factorial trial.
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
There are no parking facilities provided by UCL in the Bloomsbury area, but parking nearby starts from £5 for 2 hours (see: https://goo.gl/rZY3Q9). Nearest tube stations are Russel Square (Picadilly Line) and Euston Station.
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries, with the title: Conference 2017.
What's the refund policy?
Due to the high demand for our workshops, and the need to order catering facilities in advance, we cannot offer a refund facility for the pre-conference workshops.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No. We will have a list of registered participants and will sign you in on the day.
Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?
Neither your fee or your ticket are transferable to another event. However, depending on capacity, we can try to accommodate those who have bought a ticket for one workshop and wish to transfer to another. This is strictly on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
Provided you have notified the organisers with 2 days advance notice of the name change, and provided the correct name for our records, then we can accommodate. Name changes after this time cannot be guaranteed to be made in time, and may result in people being refused entry due to UCL's security policies and procedures. Please note that we will not be involved with transferring any funds (if involved) between parties.
