Administrative?

Administrative

Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their most productive under supervisors who give clear guidelines and while performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

Using STEM to understand ourselves

Using STEM to understand ourselves

Data Analytics adds value

“I work at DCU developing new technologies to help us understand ourselves. We develop smarter methods for the collection of information about a person’s health and performance including those related to moods, decisions and physical well-being — all with their consent. With these varied datasets we use artificial intelligence, or AI, to make sense of what we have measured.

With this approach we are exploring new ways to assess mood disorders, provide advanced warnings of seizure for those with epilepsy and to understand pain and fatigue patterns among different populations. I am also interested in learning more about how people make decisions in the real world outside the laboratory, especially in the context of financial choices.

To do this, we work with doctors, nurses, psychologists, engineers, chemists, social scientists, behavioural economists, experts in computers and statistics, as well as patients and their families.”
