We have currently 15 full-time academic members of staff, and we expect within the academic year 2012 - 2013 to be joined by a new College Lecturer and a Professor who will be our new Head of School. In the meantime, we have two joint Acting Heads of School: Dr Sean Hammond, and Dr John McCarthy, both of whom are scholars with strong international reputations. Dr Sean Hammond researches and teaches Forensic Psychology: measurement and psychometrics particularly in relation to risk assessment, personality disorders and sexual offending. Dr John McCarthy researches and teaches in the area of emerging digital and social media, and is concerned with conceptualising the experience people have of computer-mediated communication.
The School is located within the Enterprise Centre off the North Mall where we have our teaching rooms and laboratories, but we also teach on the main campus for large classes.
