I am originally from County Meath in the Republic of Ireland. My higher education studies were in Wales (BSc Psychology, Bangor University) and England (MSc Forensic Psychology, University of Kent; PhD Gerontology, King's College London). I have worked as a researcher in Dublin (methadone clinics), London (Henderson Hospital; Institute of Psychiatry), and Kent (Salomons). I joined the Department of Gerontology at Southampton in 2010 as a Lecturer, and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2016.
