My research group seeks to look at the effect of social exclusion on health from a number of perspectives, and includes work on health systems design and evaluation, work funded by the HRB on premature ageing in homeless adults and work on the effect of social exclusion on the immune system funded by the Royal Hospitals of Dublin Trust.
I am also part of the SFI-funded COVID-19 Research Hub in TCD, with a particular interest in looking at why people who are marginalized are more likely to get severe COVID-19.
Potential projects would include looking deeper into premature ageing in homeless people; looking at the effect of social exclusion (such as that experienced by homeless people and drug users) on anti-viral immune responses; looking at the effect of social exclusion on the blood-brain barrier and health services/health policy work looking at how best to ensure equity of care for people living in social exclusion.
