Dr Ana Wheelock


I am a behavioural scientist interested in the psychology of decision making. My research spans different areas; from vaccines and HIV preexposure prophylaxis to teamwork and the use of checklists in surgery. Most of my work is translational in nature and has contributed to improvements in policy and practice. I have experience undertaking multi-country studies in close collaboration with industry, leading academics and non-profit organisations.

I joined Kingston to work on the Towards Outstanding Research Reviews project (TORR), funded by the Wellcome Trust. The research aims to understand how peer-reviewers use information in grant applications to make their recommendations for funding.
