Academic biography

Lisa Fitzgerald is an Assistant Professor in Psychology at Dublin City University. She received her PhD from Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience and the School of Psychology, Trinity College Dublin. Her research is focused on developing novel approaches to studying brain health through investigating how we self-monitor, recognise errors and become aware of our internal states and how these processes are altered. She combines theoretical models with a range of behavioural and cognitive neuroscience approaches including EEG.

Current research projects include decision making and capacity assessment among brain cancer patients, cultural experiences of collective trauma and understanding the psychology of smartphone bans in schools.
