We are very pleased to welcome Shane Owen, Maria Gialama and Christine Mulligan to the Centre, all of whom will be working under the supervision of Professor Sinéad McGilloway (Centre Director) in collaboration with colleagues from within and outside the university.

Christine has been appointed to the HSE-funded PRIMERA project and will be investigating a recovery-orientated family-focused service for parents and their children experiencing mental illness. Maria will be researching non-pharmacological interventions in dementia.

We are also very pleased to welcome Shane Owen who is undertaking research to explore the role of non-cognitive skills interventions in enhancing well-being and educational performance. Shane is being co-supervised by Dr Jonathan Murphy from the Dublin Business School.
