Biography

Paul O’Connor started as a Lecturer in Primary Care in January 2013 after coming to the National University of Ireland, Galway as a Research Methodologist in July 2010. He is the Research Director of the Irish Centre for Applied Patient Safety and Simulation (ICAPSS), and Co-director of the Diploma and Masters in Patient Safety and Simulation.

His research is concerned with improving human performance and safety in high risk work environments. He has carried out research in a wide range of high risk industries (e.g. civil aviation, offshore oil production), and the military (e.g. aviation, special forces). More recently he has been carrying out research in healthcare with the aim of improving patient safety and quality of care through addressing the human factors that contribute to poor performance.

He was awarded a Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Aberdeen in 2002. Prior to coming to Ireland he was a Medical Service Corps Officer in the U.S. Navy for eight years. He served as an Assistant Professor in the Operations Research Department at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, Instructor in Aviation Psychology at the Navy/Marine Corps School of Aviation Safety, and Research Psychologist and Experimental Diver at the Navy Experimental Diving Unit.
