About Andre M Müller
Trained as a sport scientist in Germany my research primarily focuses on e- & mHealth physical activity and sedentary behavior interventions. During my PhD I developed, implemented and evaluated an mHealth exercise intervention targeting older adults in multi-ethnic Malaysia. As a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Southampton, UK, I increased my skills in digital-health intervention development and gained expertise in qualitative research. With this, I have a strong background and interest in technology-driven behavioural health research in diverse populations (older adults and culturally diverse people). Due to my strong collaborative ties with colleagues from various regions I am fortunate to be able to support the development of respective research initiatives in upper- and lower-middle income countries. Currently, I am a research fellow at the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health, National University of Singapore. Here, I investigate the determinants of physical activity and sedentary behaviour in Asian populations to inform the development of (e- & mHealth) interventions. As a committee member of the e- & mHealth Special Interest Group affiliated to the International Society of Behavioural Nutrition and Physical Activity (ISBNPA) I also contribute meaningfully to various efforts to progress the field.
