Postdoctoral Health Service Researcher
I joined the Health Behaviours Team at the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Science in January 2022 as a Postdoctoral Health Service Researcher, primarily on the National Enhanced Service Incentive for weight management in primary care (NESIE) project.
Prior to joining the University of Oxford, I worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on the Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA) at Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin; where I remain a Visiting Research Fellow.
I have also previously worked as a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Stage Research Fellow on the European Commission's Horizon 2020 funded Physical Activity and Nutritional INfluences In ageing (PANINI) project. Alongside working on this project, I completed my PhD on the prevalence of frailty among geriatric hospital inpatients, and the feasibility of adapted exercise interventions for geriatric hospital inpatients, and assisted living facility residents, with frailty.
My core research interests are in the areas of public health, gerontology, clinical exercise physiology, physical activity psychology, health economics, and demography. I hold a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc. Hons) in Sport Science and Health from Dublin City University, where I graduated in 2015 with a first-class honours (1.1).
