Area 2: Interaction between individuals and their environment

Area 2 includes studies examining how interactions between individuals and their environments affect diet and activity patterns in real-life using mobile technology (e.g., smartphones, ecological momentary assessment, wearables).

We have developed methods to allow for the collection of meaningful data throughout the day using smartphones and wearables. Currently, we are working on applying (and refining) these methods in several large-scale studies.

Ongoing projects:

  • Continuous Observations of Behavioural Risk Factors in Asia (COBRA) (overlaps with Area 3)
  • Health@NUS (overlaps with Area 3)
  • Healthy Campus Initiative
  • Singapore Wearable-enabled Health Impact Study (SWISH)
