Dr Jennifer Anne Long

BSc(Hons), PhD


My doctoral research was completed at the School of Psychology at the University of Auckland, and investigated social influences in young people's pro-environmental behaviour. I found longitudinal evidence consistent with the idea that young people's littering, recycling and cycling is influenced by friends' behaviour. In addition to this I have worked on a number of health workforce and service research and evaluation projects outside academia.

I am currently a research fellow at the Centre for Medical and Health Sciences Education at the University of Auckland. Here I primarily focus on the evaluation of a national teamwork and communication training programme for surgical teams.
