About Oleg

My research focuses on health psychology, psycho-physiology and psychometric measurement covering areas of mindfulness-based interventions, psychopathology, well-being and health-related quality of life. Generally, I am interested in psycho-physiological mechanisms that can be utilized as drug free treatments for psychological health conditions and for improvement of health and well-being.
