Projects per year
I engage in transdisciplinary, collaborative research that focuses on two broad areas: simulation-based education for health and social care; arts-based interventions for public health. I work with colleagues from a broad range of subject areas including experimental medicine, medical education, nursing, public health, sociology and social work. The shared focus is on developing new methods from the creative interaction between diverse disciplines with the common goal of understanding and improving healthcare and wellbeing in local, national and international contexts.
In 2017 I received a a Queen's University Teaching Award in the Team category for interdisciplinary education with colleagues in Medicine and Social Work. In 2012 I was honoured to receive a Queen's University Teaching Award in the Student Nominated category.
I served as Secretary General of the International Federation for Theatre Research 2011-2016. I served as President of the Irish Society for Theatre Research 2008-2011.
