Maeve started as an Research Operations Assistant in December 2016. Her roles within CASMI are varied, including general administrative tasks, website management, social media strategy, grant formation support and aiding on research projects, providing support in data collection and analysis.
Maeve completed her undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Southampton in 2014, and is currently studying for an MSc in Occupational Psychology at Birkbeck, University of London, which she will complete in September 2017. Her research project will explore how well-being is constructed through language in the context of YouTube careers, using thematic and discourse analysis.
Maeve has previously worked within healthcare, taking up roles in both the public and private sectors. Within the NHS, she was part of a community mental health team, and she has also contributed to the development of the National Inpatients’ Survey, the National Community Mental Health Survey and the NHS Staff Survey. She aims to pursue a career in occupational health psychology, specifically focusing on promoting awareness and education of mental health in the workplace, and tackling stigma.
Outside of CASMI, Maeve enjoys travelling, having solo travelled across the United States, Mexico and Canada in 2015. She is keen to develop her language skills – with the aim to one day learn both Italian and Irish – and enjoys photography. She also volunteers at Oxfordshire Mind as a Wellbeing Service Volunteer whilst also assisting with their Workplace Wellbeing project, and is a Time to Change Champion, where she is helping to end discrimination against mental health.
