Dr Daniel Powell
PhD, CPsychol, FHEA
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 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).
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 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.

Research interests are broadly within Health Psychology, with a particular focus on
- Stress and psychoneuroendocrinology
- Self-regulatory fatigue and decision fatigue
- Work, effort, and reward
- Symptom variability
- Habits in nutrition
I'm very interested in methods that facilitate research in everyday life, using real-time assessments (i.e. ecological momentary assessment; EMA) to study changing phenomena within-persons.
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. I have ongoing collaborations both within and across disciplines, including with the Business School, Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health, Health Economics, Health Services, and Primary Care.
