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.
