I am passionate about understanding and harnessing the experiences of individuals to help shape the environment they are in. In my current role, I investigate how interpersonal, contextual and uncontrollable factors influence medical trainees' experiences of their doctorate, and their future career decisions. 

In my previous role, I examined the perceptions of mental health caregivers and service users during hospital admission to help improve upon these experiences. My doctoral studies focused on narrating caregivers' experiences of psychiatric admission and comparing these experiences to those of their relative. 

I have an active interest in integrating mental health service users and caregivers into psychiatric service delivery and research. For three years, I chaired the sole collaborative service user and clinician research group in Ireland (SOURCE) that encouraged service users to pursue topics related to their own experiences through the medium of high quality research. 

I am involved in propelling mental health service users' and caregivers' human rights. Further to my studies, I have acted as a mental health spokesperson for Amnesty International, and research board member of the Irish Mental Health Commission and the Irish Health Research Board.
