Dr. Ann Monaghan
Research Fellow, Medical Gerontology

Biography

Dr Ann Monaghan completed her PhD in Physiotherapy in TCD in 2019. Her overall project was an evaluation of a broad array of parameters related to physical activity, cardiorespiratory fitness and cardiometabolic health in people living with Hepatitis C. Prior to this, Ann obtained a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy (TCD) in 2014 and a Post-graduate Certificate in Statistics (TCD) in 2015.

Currently, Ann is working as a post-doctoral researcher in the Discipline of Medical Gerontology. Her research activities relate to post COVID-19 fatigue, physical deconditioning, frailty and age-related disorders.

Ann is involved in teaching on undergraduate physiotherapy modules shared between Singapore Institute of Technology and Trinity College Dublin. She is also involved at an educational development level in the Discipline of Medical Gerontology.

Her research interests include:

-Objective measurement tools for cardiorespiratory fitness and physical activity in chronic disease populations and older adults.

-Exercise rehabilitation and physical activity promotion in the management of chronic disease and age-related disorders.

-Objective assessment of multi-system dysregulation associated with chronic disease and age-related disorders.
