Research projects

04/2011 - present; Polish Prison Service
This project involves a series of ongoing research studies conducted in collaboration with the Polish Prison Service (PPS). This research is primarily focused on the areas of recidivistic criminal behaviour, criminal social identity, criminal thinking styles and psychopathy of offenders. Current research projects include: (i) an examination of the relationship between trauma, suicidal thoughts, criminal identity, and psychopathy within a prison population, (ii) Relationship between prisoners attitudes toward sex offending and psychopathy. Participants for these research projects are recruited from 3 different prisons: High, Meduim and Low Security Prisons. Partial funding for conducting these projects has been awarded by the Polish Prison Service.

01/2012 - 10/2012; Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland
I worked on several research projects (funded by Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences) that provide information on Irish Contraception and Crisis Pregnancy Surveys (ICCP-2003/2010) and the 2006 Irish Study of Sexual Health and Relationships (ISSHR). Project resulted in 4 peer-reviewed publications.

01/2011 - 09/2012; An Garda Síochána (Police Service in the Republic of Ireland) and EULEX Kosovo: European Union Rule of Law Mission
This research project was conducted in participation with An Garda Síochána in the Republic of Ireland and the European Union Rule of Law Mission (EULEX) in the Republic of Kosovo. Active duty law enforcement officers from An Garda Síochána serving in both the Republic of Ireland and the Republic of Kosovo were recruited, along with an international group of military personnel and emergency service workers stationed in the Republic of Kosovo as part of the EULEX mission. This study focused on identifying the critical psychological factors mediating the relationship between experience of traumatic events and the development of posttraumatic stress symptomology. Project resulted in 7 peer-reviewed publications.

06/2009 - 05/2010; An Garda Síochána (Police Service in the Republic of Ireland)
I established a formal research relationship with An Garda Síochána in order to conduct a series of research projects that recruited active and retired members of An Garda Síochána stationed throughout the Republic of Ireland. This research project was conducted in order to assess positive mental health related behaviours among members of An Garda Síochána. This project resulted in 2 peer-reviewed publications.
