Biography

Molly is a Health Research Board Research Leader. Since January 2014 she has held a full-time research leadership role at the School of Psychology, where she directs the Health Behaviour Change Research Group. Within this group, she and her team apply behavioural science to the development and evaluation of complex interventions to promote healthy behaviour change within health services and to promote public health. All Molly's research is done within multidisciplinary teams. Currently, Molly's main research focuses are in: Diabetes and self-management; Cardiovascular disease and sexual health; Promotion of healthy infant feeding; Promotion of physical activity within pregnant women and others; Interventions targeting health professional behaviour change. Molly obtained an honours degree in Psychology from Trinity College Dublin (1994) and both a Masters degree in Health Psychology (1998) and a PhD (2003) from NUI, Galway. Molly joined the School of Psychology in NUI, Galway in July 2004 as Health Psychology Lecturer, where she has contributed to and directed the MSc in Health Psychology and Structured PhD in Psychology and Health.
