Research Fellow


Dr Schenk has been working as a research fellow for the Center of Behaviour Change (CBC) since 2022. Her research experience has been around developing and applying theories and frameworks to synthesise knowledge about behaviour change and mental health interventions.

Paulina completed her PhD in Health Psychology at UCL in 2022, developing an ontology of mechanisms of action in behaviour change interventions. Since then, she has worked on developing ontologies as part of the Human Behaviour-Change Project (https://www.humanbehaviourchange.org/) and supporting projects around behaviour change in healthcare as part of the NIHR Policy Research Unit (https://behscipru.nihr.ac.uk). Her current work focuses primarily on developing an ontology of mental health as part of the Galenos Project (https://galenos.org.uk/).
