Dr Michelle Richardson
Michelle completed a PhD (2005-2009) funded by the Economic and Social Research Council for a project that looked at the psychosocial antecedents to academic achievement. Since then, Michelle has been involved in a number of research projects that span the fields of psychiatry, child mental health and health psychology. For example, she was involved in the development of taxonomy of behaviour change techniques (BCTs) as a method and tool for specifying, evaluating and implementing complex behavioural change interventions. She was also the lead researcher on an (NIHR) HTA funded systematic review of behaviour change interventions that target children with attention deficient hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in school settings. Michelle is currently working on the MACH study and supporting systematic reviews in public health and health promotion at the EPPI-Centre.
