I am a Research Assistant working on the Wellcome Trust funded MYRIAD project (“My Resilience in Adolescence”). This large cluster-RCT aims to establish whether mindfulness training in schools is effective and cost-effective.
Previously, I worked as a Primary School Teacher in Ireland and as an Assistant Educational Psychologist before joining the Department of Psychiatry in 2016.
I completed my B.Ed in Education and Psychology at Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick, and my M.Sc in Developmental Psychology at the University of Dundee. I am interested in research concerning the promotion of mental health and wellbeing among children and young people.
