Paula Alves - Research Associate

In 2012, Paula was awarded with an international research fellowship (Portugal Foundation for Science and Technology) to pursue a PhD in Psychology at the Lisbon University Institute, in partnership with King’s College London, which she completed in 2016. Prior to her PhD, Paula obtained an MSc in Clinical and Public Health Aspects of Addiction at King’s College London in 2010, and a BSc (Hons) in Clinical Psychology at the University of Lisbon in 2007. Since 2010, Paula has worked primarily as a researcher in many international projects about mental health and the outcomes of psychological treatment. Her main topics of interest are the involvement of patients with health care provision, as well as patients’ knowledge, attitudes and perspectives about the treatment that they are receiving, following a quantitative and qualitative research approach. To date, Paula has authored numerous peer-review publications and presentations in several international scientific conferences.  Paula has also collaborated with non-academic institutions in the field of substance misuse, including the Global Drug Survey and the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction.
