Got Doctorate, Travel More, Have Fun.
I have just moved to Chicago, because I have started a Doctorate at the University of Chicago in Cultural Psychology. Before that, I spent about two and a half years traveling around the world. I spent a lot of time in central and south America, as well as Australia, Europe and the USA. I am from Ireland, and enjoy spending time here whenever I get a chance.
I'm also interested to meet new people who are laid back, fun, interesting, etc.
I studied Social Psychology at both the University of Cambridge and University College Cork, Ireland, and I have specific expertise in cultural psychology. Most recently I have written some articles on the social psychology of peace and conflict which you can see here:
