Biography

Dr Brady graduated from NUI Maynooth with a BA in Psychology in 2009.  She then commenced her PhD in the Psychology Department in Maynooth University which she completed in October 2013. This project focussed on the effect of ageing on memory and afforded her valuable research and analytical skills. Following this, Dr. Brady joined the Department of Psychology at Liverpool Hope University as a Post-Doctoral Teaching Fellow.  She then returned to Ireland and joined the Centre for Gerontology and Rehabilitation in University College Cork as a Clinical Research Support Officer in January 2015.  During this time, she gained invaluable experience in the clinical setting, working with health care staff and patients. Subsequently, she began working as a postdoctoral researcher in the School for Nursing and Midwifery in UCC on the Safe Nurse Staffing and Skill-Mix research project under the direction of Professor Drennan. This project has addressed queries on staffing in Ireland and influenced policy maker’s decisions. She is responsible for the overall management of the research element of the project along with collecting, managing and analysing data.
