Academic Interests

I am currently undertaking my PhD at the School of Education, Trinity College Dublin.  I achieved my Master from The University of Hong Kong when I explored ‘Play Therapy’ outcomes in 2008.

I am an active member of the research community in the School of Education, Trinity College Dublin and have co-authored a number of articles which have a particular focus on various aspects of Wellbeing, inclusion, early intervention, Autism, and Lego-Based Therapy.

2021 Postgraduate Educational Research Conference

While working from home in 2021, I acted as a Co-Chair of the organising committee (5 ladies from around the world) for the 2021 Postgraduate Educational Research Conference in Trinity College Dublin. The conference was a great success with over 120 delegates from around the world! To open the conference we made a short video introducing ourselves and our research work. Please feel free to have a look!
