Name: Gert-Jan de Bruijn
MSc: 2002, University Utrecht
PhD: 2007, Maastricht University
Interests: I am specialized in psychology, health promotion, behavioural medicine, and persuasive communication strategies. Within these domains, I have a specific interest in health communication theories and interventions regarding exercise and physical activity, dietary behaviours and alcohol consumption.
Research: I have a specific interest in intervention effects of risk communication and self-regulatory strategies on physical activity, dietary intake, smoking, and alcohol consumption. Further, I study the antecedents and consequences of interpersonal communication and exposure to health-related news media on health behaviour. Finally, I am interesting in meta-analyses and theory development.
