About

I am a Senior Lecturer (US: Associate Professor) in the Centre for Positive Psychology and Health at RCSI University of Medicine and Health Sciences. I lecture on topics such as wellbeing, positive education, positive leadership, positive health and research. I work with students completing their Postgraduate Diploma, Masters, PhD or Doctorate degrees.

Prior to RCSI, I worked as a programme leader for a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology at the University of East London. My previous posts included an Assistant Professor at Maynooth University, a lecturer at Trinity College Dublin and Dublin City University.

I love writing and have had the pleasure of contributing to some academic journals, professional magazines, and other media with over 200 publications. I am currently enjoying the role of editor-in-chief for the “Journal of Happiness and Health”, and have served as a peer-reviewer of a few other academic journals. I have written and co-written eight books. I am passionate about research and love collaborating with colleagues worldwide on various projects associated with wellbeing. I write a blog for Psychology Today, which is the largest forum for psychology-related topics in the world. For my work on wellbeing, I was acknowledged by the Irish Times as one of 30 people who make Ireland a better place. I was chuffed to read this! Thank you!
