Ms Maaike Bijker - Research Assistant
Maaike graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2010 with a BA in Social and Political Sciences (joint sociology and psychology track). She subsequently completed an MSc in Social and Cultural Psychology at the London School of Economics and Political Science, from which she graduated in 2011 with Distinction.
Although her fields of interest are broad, Maaike’s focus is mainly on the inherent social and cultural nature of human thought and behaviour. She has recently taken a keen interest in behaviour change, specifically health-related behaviour.
Maaike joined the General Practice and Primary Care Research Unit in January 2012 as a Research Assistant on a large scale NIHR funded randomised controlled trial that seeks to develop and evaluate brief interventions for physical activity that can be delivered in Primary Care settings (VBI project). Her role is to assist the Study Co-ordinator and Intervention Developer with their main responsibilities.
