Biography

Kristina began her career working for the digital marketing industry and returned to studies in 2009 and completed an MSc in Health Psychology with distinction at Coventry University. She was then able to combine her industry knowledge of Web 2.0 technologies and her academic knowledge of behaviour change in her doctoral research at the Institute of Digital Healthcare, The University of Warwick. Her PhD was also an applied project where she won funding from Public Health Warwickshire to fund the technical development of a family healthy eating app to support local family weight management services. She has since partnered with a local start-up company and won funding from Innovate UK and a partnership with the Jamie Oliver Group to further develop the family healthy eating app known as ‘Health Heroes’. In September 2015, Kristina took up the position of a Research Fellow in eHealth and wellbeing interventions, a joint post between Coventry University and Public Health Warwickshire. She has published in a diverse range of disciplinary journals including health psychology, public health, medical internet research and engineering and given oral presentations in industry and academic conferences within the UK and overseas. Kristina’s research interests include the application of behavioural science to eHealth interventions; the use of smartphones to support healthy dietary behaviours and; the translation of theory into current public health practice.

Vision Statement

Kristina is interested in how academic research can be translated into public health working practices and hopes to achieve this in her current post as a Research Fellow for Public Health Warwickshire. She is also keen to continue working on interdisciplinary projects in the area of health behaviour change where she has so far been inspired by other disciplines in design and computer modelling in the development and evaluation of digital health interventions. She is driven by the potential of her work to have a direct impact on the health of populations both in the UK and overseas.
