Biography

Dr. Michael Daly is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology, Maynooth University. 

My research focuses on three topics: (i) the health and economic outcomes of childhood traits including self-control as gauged in large scale longitudinal research studies, (ii) the dynamic relationship between economic circumstances (e.g. unemployment, socioeconomic disadvantage) and health and well-being across life, and (iii) the relationship between human health and well-being, with a particular focus on the stress-related consequences of body weight.

Links to published research in these areas and in press articles and preprints can be found on my Googe Scholar page: https://scholar.google.co.uk/citations?user=D2ILP9kAAAAJ&hl=en

This research has been funded by several bodies including the EU Commission, the Economic and Social Research Council (UK), the National Institute for Health Research (UK), Skills Development Scotland, and the Irish Research Council.
