Biography

Chris Noone is a graduate of NUI Galway and Leiden University. Chris has expertise in health, cognitive and LGBT+ psychology. Chris completed his PhD at NUI Galway under the supervision of Dr Michael Hogan. This focused on critically analysing claims regarding the effect of mindfulness on thinking skills. He has contributed to research on a wide range of topics broadly related to health, wellbeing and cognition. His postdoctoral work  involved a feasibility study of the CHARMS sexual counselling intervention in Irish cardiac rehab centres and applying network meta-analysis to the comparison of pharmacological and physical activity interventions for people with hypertension.

He works closely with the Health Behaviour Change Research group led by Prof. Molly Byrne, the MEDAL research group led by Dr Gerry Molloy and the CINSU led by Dr Michael Hogan.
 Chris is Chair of the Research and Policy Sub-Committee of the National LGBT Federation. He also contributed to the development of the first LGBT Staff Network at the NUI Galway, of which he is co-chair, and is a coordinator for Bi+ Ireland. He hopes to establish a research group focused on LGBT health and wellbeing in Ireland in the near future.
