Stephen studied Psychology at Trinity College Dublin, completing his BA in 2012, investigating cognitive biases in memory for his final year project. Stephen later completed his MSc in Health Psychology at the National University of Ireland, Galway in 2015. For his MSc dissertation, he used the Common Sense Model in a qualitative investigation of patient and healthcare professional perspectives on self-monitoring of blood glucose for non-insulin treated Type 2 diabetes.
Stephen joined City, University of London in August 2015 as a Research Assistant and PhD candidate, working on an NIHR funded project aiming to develop and evaluate theoretically enhanced audit and feedback interventions to reduce the use of unnecessary blood components.
Stephen's PhD Investigating the use of theory in process evaluations of interventions to change healthcare professional behaviour: a multi-method investigation is supervised by: Dr. Fabiana Lorencatto, Prof. Jill Francis & Dr. Natalie Gould.
Stephen is a member of the Implementation Research Group.

Stephen’s main research interests are behaviour change and theory-driven approaches in health psychology. His MSc dissertation incorporated these interests, using the Common Sense Model to explore patient and health professional perspectives on self-monitoring of blood glucose for non-insulin treated type 2 diabetes.
Stephen current research interests are implementation research and how to use behavioural theory to translate research evidence into practice in healthcare contexts. He works as part of the AFFINITIE programme, an NIHR funded project aiming to develop and evaluate theoretically enhanced audit and feedback interventions to promote evidence-based blood transfusion practice.
