Samantha is a Lecturer in the School of Applied Psychology at University College Cork. Samantha leads the Biology, Emotions and Transitions (BEATs) Lab. Samantha’s research examines the correlates and consequences of adolescent health and well-being, with a focus on biobehavioural responses to experience.  Her work is particularly interested in the dynamic interactions of puberty, context and psychosocial resources as they relate to the biological and behavioural predictors of allostatic load.
