Psychology

Lecturer / Assistant Professor

Biography

Dr MacIntyre is an environmental psychologist investigating fundamental theoretical questions about motor cognition, well-being and human-nature interactions. Since, 1993, he has been conducting research on mental imagery, embodied cognition and action related processes, in the field of motor cognition. He studied psychology in University College Dublin where he graduated with a BA, a first class honours research Masters (1996) and subsequently a PhD in 2007. His research was supervised by the late Professor of Cognitive Psychology at UCD, Aidan Moran. He has published widely on topics including mental imagery and embodied cognition, mental health and well-being and most recently on nature based interventions including green exercise. In 2019, he co-edited Physical Activity in Natural Settings (Routledge) with Aoife Donnelly. He is an Associate Editor of the leading journal in sport psychology, International Review of Sport and Exercise Psychology. He has recently edited a special issue of Frontiers in Psychology on methodological challenges in assessing human-nature interactions and also co-editor of a special issue in IJERPH on the topic of advances in green exercise and health promotion. In recent years, his research activity has focused upon nature based solutions for urban health and sustainability. He is a member of the advisory board of H2020 NBS project RE-Nature, the INTERREG Project CCAT on coastal citizenship and is a visiting lecturer at the Technical University of Munich. He is the coordinator of GOGREEN ROUTES a 10.5 m. euro four-year project on urban health which targets six European cities and has global outreach with its 40 partners.
