Biography

I qualified as a general nurse and midwife and worked in the UK, Middle East, Asia and Africa before returning to Ireland to complete a Higher Diploma in Public Health Nursing followed by a MSc in Community Health. I undertook a PhD at the Department of Health Policy, Trinity College, funded by the HRB Scholar’s Programme in Health Services and Population Health Research from 2007-2011. Following a period lecturing at DCU, I subsequently conducted postdoctoral research in cardiovascular epidemiology (2013-2016) at the Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (TILDA) at Trinity College funded by the HRB Interdisciplinary Capacity Enhancement (ICE) award scheme. I continue to work on knowledge exchange and dissemination projects in relation to this research output. I returned to DCU in 2016 where I currently lecture on the MSc in Nursing and Healthcare Practice, the Bachelor of Science in Health and Society and the Certificate in Homeless Prevention and Intervention.

Research Interests

Current research interests include the prevalence and distribution of cardiovascular disease risk factors including hypertension and hypercholesterolaemia in older adults in Ireland, the impact of these findings on policy and the management of these conditions in clinical practice. As a visiting research fellow at the Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing I am continuing to work with a multidisciplinary team of researchers providing an evidence base for community nursing practice.
