Development, optimisation and evaluation of apps for smoking cessation and alcohol reduction

I’m regularly involved in the development, optimisation and evaluation of apps for smoking cessation and alcohol reduction, including the evaluation of digitally enabled personal carbon monoxide monitors and related smoking cessation apps, the refinement of the content and design of the Drink Less app and the evaluation of the popular Smoke Free app in a parallel-arm, randomised controlled trial.

Smoking, vaping and COVID-19

During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, I’m co-leading a living evidence review (updated 9 times to-date, with version 7 published in a peer-reviewed journal) on the association of smoking status with SARS-CoV-2 infection, hospitalisation, disease severity and mortality, which is updated every other month.

Systematic review of Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA) studies of five public health-related behaviours

I’m co-leading a large systematic review of ecological momentary assessment (EMA) studies targeting five public health-related behaviours, including smoking, alcohol, physical activity, dietary behaviours and sexual health-related behaviours. Findings from this review are expected to inform design decisions in future observational EMA studies.
