Research Profile

John C McCarthy

Biography

I was appointed Professor of Applied Psychology in 2013 and have also been Head of School since. I was also Vice-Head for Teaching and Learning in the College of Arts, Celtic Studies, and Social Sciences from 2014 to 2018 and before that Chair of the College Academic Development Committee.

I am a graduate of UCC where I obtained a BA in Applied Psychology and PhD. I was a Post-Doctoral Research in University of York, UK, and Lecturer in University of Limerick before returning to UCC in 1992. For most of my time in UCC, I have also been a Programme Board Member, and Human Sciences Lead, of the Open Education (DCU) Distance Education Oscail IT programme, which provides distance education to students who, for practical reasons, would have difficulty studying for a conventional degree. Among the other academic responsibilities I have  had, I have served as a member of the Mental Health Commission Research Committee and the Government Data Forum.

My research is concerned with understanding the influence of emerging social, personal, and work technologies on people’s lived experience, and using that understanding to inform design of usable and enriching technologies. My particular focus for the least few years has been on experience-centred design of technologies and services for and with people  with dementia and their carers. and people with health-related difficulties. My teaching also covers Psychology and Everyday Lived Experience, Qualitative Research Methods, and Psychology of Aging.
