Michael Daly was an IRCHSS Government of Ireland CARA Fellow, funded by the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences and the Marie Curie Programme for Co-funding Regional, National and International Programmes. During his transnational mobility fellowship he conducted research at the Health Services Research Unit (University of Aberdeen) and the UCD Geary Institute (University College Dublin). Michael has been a Trinity College Ussher Fellow (2007 – 2010), a 2008 Fulbright Scholar in Florida State University, and lecturer in the School of Psychology in the University of Manchester.
My research interests are in the following areas:
1) Specifying the bidirectional links between socioeconomic status/labour market outcomes and physical and mental health.
2) Examining the role of self-control in determining socioeconomic/labour market and physical and mental health trajectories.
3) Identifying the determinants of patterns of well-being from intraday variation to lifespan trends, and well-being measurement with a focus on integrating ecological and psychobiological measures and 'high resolution measures' of human welfare.
