I am a researcher and teacher at the School of Allied Health, University of Limerick. I am also a member of the Physical Activity for Health Research Cluster at the Health Research Institute. Previously, I was based at the University of Otago in Aotearoa/New Zealand.

My interests are interdisciplinary and broad, but can be grouped into:

  • Health — I apply psychology to questions in health. A lot of what I do is quite culturally located, trying to understand health behaviour in different locations: Indonesia, Pakistan, New Zealand, Ireland. Recent specific projects include looking at the use of various substances for improving academic performance, using n-of-1 interventions to increase physical activity, and publication bias in health fields.

  • Data/Methods — My very first research project in my third year of university used multivariate statistics, and I was teaching assistant for a third year statistics paper in the first year of my PhD, and have been teaching statistics/research methods on and off ever since. I support openness and transparency, and have recently published a paper promoting the use count regression (Poisson, negative binomial etc.). I am also very interested in publication bias.

  • Education — Having spent many years doing admissions for health professional programmes, I’ve done some work on admissions processes. I also recently completed a Masters in Teaching & Learning, with my dissertation looking at increasing student engagement with research methods courses.

  • Wine — I don’t really do this much any more, but historically, I’ve done quite a bit looking at perception of flavour in wine, mostly Sauvignon blanc.

  • Coffee — Just kidding. Even my interests are not that broad. I do drink a lot of coffee, and we roast our own green beans.

  • Random — There could be more sub-headings here, but along the way, I’ve been involved on lots of other projects. Some of my much older/original work was in sociolinguistics, and there are lots of things I’ve got involved in with friends.
