Dr Daniel Powell
BSc (Hons), MSc, PhD, CPsychol
I am a Lecturer in Health Psychology within the Institute of Applied Health Sciences at the University of Aberdeen. I joined the Aberdeen Health Psychology Group (AHPG) in 2014, having completed my PhD at the University of Southampton, and have been here ever since.
I am a Chartered Member of the British Psychological Society (BPS), Full Member of its Division of Health Psychology (DHP) and a member of the European Health Psychology Society (EHPS). In 2019, I was awarded the Stan Maes Early Career Award by the EHPS.
As part of my role, I contribute teaching and supervision on the MSc Health Psychology programme in Aberdeen, and various other postgraduate courses. I became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in 2019.
My research typically uses intensive longitudinal methods (ecological momentary assessment) to investigate contextual and temporal influences on stress and fatigue, clinical symptoms, and self-regulation. I run several workshops, and a summer school, on intensive longitudinal methods.

Research interests are broadly within Health Psychology, with a particular focus on
- Stress and Psychoneuroendocrinology
- Self-regulatory fatigue and decision fatigue
- Work, effort, and demand
- Symptom variability
- Habits in nutrition
The majority of my work employs real-time assessment methodologies (i.e. ecological momentary assessment; EMA) to study changing phenomena in daily life.
I am always keen to hear from potential collaborators, particular in relation to use of EMA methods and/or testing models of self-regulatory fatigue.
Applied Health Sciences
I am actively involved in the delivery of the BPS-accredited MSc Health Psychology programme, and contribute to postgraduate and undergraduate courses on other programmes.
I'm currently the course co-ordinator of the following courses:
- PU5053 - Stress, Personality & Health
- PU5909 - Health Psychology Research Projects
Non-course Teaching Responsibilities
Dr Turu Stadler and Dr Dan Powell established a Summer School in Intensive Longitudinal Methods in 2018. This was followed up with a Virtual Summer School in Intensive Longitudinal Methods in 2020 and 2021. Future iterations will be announced soon.
