School of Psychology Research

You are very welcome to the School of Psychology’s Research webpages.  Our   research activities continue to thrive and evolve and make Trinity a terrific place to do psychological research.   Since the department was founded in the 1960s, the School has developed an international reputation for excellence, both in terms of research activities and research-led teaching.  Many of our staff lead ground-breaking projects which are internationally renowned, and published in leading peer-reviewed journals.  We publish critically acclaimed books, present at leading international conferences, and engage in high-level consultations to promote research utilization.  Our research is of global relevance, but we also value the importance of research that addresses national research needs and opportunities within Ireland. 

Many of us are strongly committed to ‘psychology that works’ through our engagement with knowledge transfer to industry and commerce; health and social services.  Our research is funded by a very broad range of sources both nationally and internationally.

The School’s research is managed through Trinity Research Institutes and Centres, and through Research Clusters with the School - where people work around related themes - as well as through Individual Researchers developing their own distinctive research programmes.

As the Director of Research I aim to support a strong, vibrant and inclusive research community.  Our research embraces the enriching and fascinating breath of psychology.   Through our many exciting and innovative inter-disciplinary collaborations we are also pushing-out the ‘envelope’ of psychology. 

Do please browse through these pages to learn about our projects, staff and research students. Feel free to directly contact any of us, if you want further information or have any suggestions or comments.

Director of Research.
