James Reynolds is a Research Associate in the Behaviour and Health Research Unit (BHRU), in the Department of Public Health and Primary Care at the University of Cambridge.
He has a background in psychology and received his PhD for work on the cognitive effects of cannabis use. He then went on to study other health behaviours such as tobacco, alcohol, physical activity, and eating behaviours.
His current research involves evaluating interventions designed to improve eating behaviours. The other main stream of his work involves studying how the public think and feel about public health and health policies.
This has a particular focus on attempting to increase the public’s support for effective health policies.
