BiographySusan Michie completed her undergraduate and doctoral education in psychology at the University of Oxford and her clinical psychology training at the Institute of Psychiatry, University of London. She is a chartered clinical and health psychologist and a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences, the Academy of Behavioral Medicine Reseearch, the European Health Psychology Society and the British Psychological Society. Susan Michie is Director of UCL's Centre for Behaviour Change and leads the Health Psychology Research Group at UCL. Her research focuses on behaviour change in relation to health: how to understand it theoretically and how to develop more effective interventions. Her work develops methods to advance the study of behaviour change e.g. specifying intervention content using taxonomies of behaviour change techniques (including BCT Taxonomy v1), and applying theory to intervention development and to evidence synthesis. This is conducted in the domains of risky and preventive behaviours amongst the general population, managing illness, and professional practice and implementation. Her work in internet and mobile technologies includes collaborations with Lucy Yardley who leads LifeGuide, an open source software platform that allows researchers to easily and flexibly create and modify internet-delivered interventions, and UBhave which investigates the power and challenges of mobile phones and social networking for digital behaviour change interventions. Together with Robert West, she leads the evaluation of StopAdvisor, a theory-based internet intervention to support smoking cessation and investigates mobile text and smartphone interventions. She is Associate Editor of Annals of Behavioral Medicine and of Implementation Science. She holds more than 20 research grants and has published more than 200 peer-reviewed journal articles.
