 Brief description of your activity focus
developing technological tools in mental health and education

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
I am a B.Sc in Psychology Applied to Information Technology graduate and an M.Sc in CyberPsychology
grad, both of which I received from IADT Dun Laoghaire, Dublin, Ireland.

I will be commencing my PhD this September with the School of Education in Trinity College Dublin under
the Supervision of Dr Stephen Minton.

I am also the Project Worker for the Dublin South East School Completion Programme working with
students from 9 schools (6 Primary and 3 Secondary) that are at risk of dropping out of school for
various issues (Mental Health, Behavioural, problems at home, etc). I teach various psychology topics to
students and also develop personal development interventions for students in the schools I work in. I
teach computer applications (Scratch, GameMaker, Prezi) and other concepts of HCI to these students.

I am working over the summer with the Center for Talented Youth Ireland as a lecturer in

I am also a Public Relations Officer for the Psychological Society of Ireland Special Interest Group in
Media, Art, and CyberPsychology.

For the last several years I have been researching into the development of technological tools for
children and youth with issues of mental health, behaviour, selfesteem, confidence, etc. My M.Sc
research sparked interest from a number of academics, and I was invited to write a chapter in
the upcoming book Cyberpsychology and New Media
http://www.routledgementalhealth.com/books/details/9781848721661/. My research focused on using
Artificial Intelligence as a means to assist therapists in their practice by offering clients a technological
support that communicated with the client.
