Marilisa Boffo is assistant professor in clinical psychology and eHealth at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. Trained as a clinical psychologist and research methodologist, she combines the two worlds into the design and empirical investigation of digital interventions for behavior change. 

Marilisa completed her PhD at the University of Padova  in 2014, focussing on the psychometric properties of implicit measures in psychopathology and on the design and evaluation of an innovative blended intervention for alcohol addiction in an outpatient regime (i.e., Cognitive Bias Modification combined with motivational interviewing). After her PhD, Marilisa has worked for several years as a post-doc researcher at the University of Amsterdam, where she further specialised in the design and evaluation of digital behavior change interventions, mostly in in the addiction field. This  included the design and evaluation of a series of serious games for behaviour change in collaboration with TUDelft, two mental health care institutions (PsyQ and Brijder) and a serious game company (RanJ). As a result of her background in research methods, Marilisa is also specialised in the design and management of (pragmatic) RCTs, with a special attention on their methodological aspects.
