Research Interests

Navneet's expertise are in Health Psychology, Behavioural Science and Medical Statistics. To date, she has been interested in self-management in the context of chronic physical and mental illness; behaviour change; experimental psychology; behavioural insights (i.e., 'nudge'); public health; and policy-driven research in the UK. Navneet has developing interests in public health issues affecting populations globally, particularly in low and middle-income countries.


Navneet joined the University of Warwick in January 2017. She began working in Warwick Business School (supervised by Prof. Ivo Vlaev) on a 'nudge' project awarded by the Health Foundation, focused on improving hand hygiene compliance within a hospital setting using visual and olfactory primes. Navneet moved over to Warwick Medical School in January 2018, working in the NIHR Global Research Unit on Improving Health in Slums, under the supervision of Prof. Richard Lilford. Navneet has a PhD awarded by the University of Nottingham. The focus of her PhD research was on the 'Common Sense Model,' and whether illness beliefs outlined by this model, predict key markers of post-stroke recovery, including health-related quality of life, disability and mood. She also has an MSc in Medical Statistics from the University of Leicester, and a BSc (HONS) in Psychology from the University of Leeds. Navneet has almost 10 years of experience working as a researcher within various academic institutions, managing a range of qualitative, quantitative and mixed-method applied health research projects, predominantly delivered in NHS settings, and funded by numerous large organisations, such as the NIHR.
