Dr Marie Kotzur

  • Research Associate (Mental Health & Wellbeing)

Biography

Marie Kotzur joined Mental Health and Wellbeing in December 2017. She is a research associate with a background in health psychology and behavioural science. Her work focuses on the prevention and early diagnosis of cancer through increased screening participation. Since February 2018 Marie has worked with Katie Robb on a project funded by the CSO to develop and trial a planning support tool to reduce practical barriers to bowel cancer screening.

In May 2015 Marie joined the Institute of Health and Wellbeing to work with Katie Robb on a NAEDI-funded project which identified unique practical barriers to bowel cancer screening among women otherwise inclined to participate in cancer screening. This work has contributed to our understanding of why some women participate in breast and cervical, but not bowel cancer screening.

Marie is passionate about supporting people in finding better way to preserve their health. She received a BA (Psychology) from University College Cork (Ireland) in 2010 and a PhD in 2017, also from University College Cork. Her doctoral research investigated the predictors of cervical screening cancer screening participation among Irish women. This project aimed to better understand what influences decision-making and attendance for smear tests.
