Prior to joining the department, Mark lectured in the School of Health & Human Performance at Dublin City University. He has a B.A (2002) and a Ph.D. (2006) in Psychology from University College Dublin. Mark's doctoral thesis was titled "An Empirical Investigation of Expertise in Golf Putting and Green-Reading". This research was funded with an IRCHSS scholarship from the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences. Mark's teaching and research interests focus on two main areas: motor cognition and applied sport psychology interventions. Mark's research to date has focused on trying to understand cognitive and perceptual expertise of elite athletes. Mark is the founding chairman of the Division of Sport, Exercise and Performance Psychology of the Psychological Society of Ireland and has recently delivered a keynote address to the Psychological Society of Irelands Student Congress. Mark has utilised mixed methodologies in examining the cognitive processes underlying expert performance from qualitative (interviews, focus groups) to quantitative (laboratory and filed studies). Specifically he has used eye-tracking technology to examine visual attentional control in expert's decision-making skills, preparation for action and subsequent performance execution. He is also interested in mental skills training and sport psychology interventions with athletes and coaches.
