Biography

Dr Magee is a health psychology researcher, with specific interests in the following two related areas:

  • Understanding the influence of poor sleep quality on health and well-being.
  • Investigating how factors such as sleep, work-life balance, and workplace bullying affect employee outcomes (e.g., absenteeism, work engagement).

He is also interested in the determinants and consequences of health behaviours more broadly (e.g., condom use, alcohol), and the well-being of vulnerable populations. He holds a number of grants and consultancies, and has a keen interest in the translation of research findings into policy and practice.
