Administration At the UCD School of Education I direct doctoral research on the Doctorate in Educational Psychology programme. This involves working with a team of doctoral supervisors and students to bring doctoral dissertations to completion and examination. I also enjoy teaching a variety of modules on the psychology of education as detailed below. Teaching My teaching focuses on applying knowledge of how people's minds work to practice. Core teaching interests include the psychology of motivation and engagement applied in undergraduate student learning, and the psychological wellbeing of children and youth applied in educational settings. Mentoring I am passionate about supporting early career academics in their journey from doctoral studies onward. Postgraduate and Postdoctoral researchers in the ELSS Lab participate in giving and receiving mentorship in collaboration with others in the lab. Members of the ELSS Lab generally work in teams, and are also supported individually in advanced methods of research design and data analysis (qualitative and statistical).
