Angela Difeng Wu

BA (Hons), MSc


DPhil Student

Doctoral Project

I am a DPhil student in the Primary Health Care Department under the supervision of Professor Paul Aveyard, Dr Jamie Hartmann-Boyce and Dr Nicola Lindson. My doctoral research aims to investigate the relationship between smoking cessation and recurrence of cardiovascular disease. I will also focus on developing a way to reframe how smoking cessation support is offered by doctors, to promote doctors to view as an addiction to be treated and not a matter of choice. My research is funded by the British Heart Foundation.

Research Interests

My research interests focus on applying psychological and anthropological knowledge to public health policy and using our understanding of human behaviour to prevent illness and disease.

Education

In 2020 I completed an MSc in Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology, awarded Distinction, at the University of Oxford.

In 2019, I graduated with a first class BSc (Hons) in Psychology from Trinity College Dublin.
