Biography

After obtaining her BA Hons (2000) and MSc (2002) in psychology from Trinity College Dublin, Dr Cullen worked in research posts in Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, primarily in the area of dementia and old age psychiatry. She completed her clinical psychology training in Glasgow, specialising in neuropsychology and rehabilitation, then worked in acute neurosciences and rehabilitation services within NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. Dr Cullen is a member of the BPS Specialist Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists. She holds a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (2006) and a PhD in psychiatric epidemiology (2018). Dr Cullen joined the Mental Health and Wellbeing group in 2010, and was appointed as a Senior Lecturer in 2019.

Research interests

Dr Cullen's research focuses on the epidemiology and assessment of cognitive function in psychiatric and neurological conditions. She is particularly interested in applying causal inference methods to understand the risk factors and mediating processes that may explain variation in cognitive function. She works closely with other researchers at the University of Glasgow and elsewhere on UK Biobank research.

Dr Cullen is also involved in research on psychological therapies and rehabilitation in neurological conditions.

Recent articles and analytic code are available on her OSF page.
