Hi! I am Dr. Gary Bradley, a psychologist specialising in risk communication and behaviour change. I work mainly on environmental and health issues and help professionals by designing interventions that influence others to change their behaviour.
I gained my BSc. and PhD at Queens University, Belfast with the late and sadly missed Professor Noel Sheehy on risk perception, risk communication and Personal Construct Theory relating to electromagnetic fields. My past experience includes research and lecturing in human behaviour in fire, pharmacy, youth work and music production and consulting in business psychology and coaching. I am currently am a Research Fellow (Radon) at the Irish Centre for Research in Applied Geosciences (iCrag) at Trinity College Dublin.
The current context of climate change, health issues and environmental problems are complex and my approach is to bring the sub-disciplines of health and environmental psychology together. These effectively address themes such as optimal health, lifestyle change and illness management and the influence of people on the environment and the environment on behaviour. To support this I am also studying for an MSc. in Health Psychology at Ulster University and preparing for Mountain Leader training. I was once a professional musician, but that’s another story…
