Biography

Google Scholar Profile

Denis O'Hora graduated from University College Cork in 1998. He began his postgraduate work at UCC before moving to the National University of Ireland Maynooth in 1999 to complete his studies with the support of a Government of Ireland Scholarship. In 2002, he took up a lecturing post in London Metropolitan University where he worked for a year before being appointed as a lecturer in behaviour analysis at the University of Ulster. He was appointed to his post in the National University of Ireland, Galway in January, 2007.

Denis is a Chartered Psychologist (Teaching and Research) and Associate Fellow in the British Psychological Society (BPS). He is also a member of the Society for Cognitive Science and the Irish Ergonomics Society, and a Fellow of the Association for Contextual Behavioural Science.

Research Interests

My expertise concerns the dynamics of learning and decision making; that is, how people adapt to the situations they find themselves in.  I am an experimental psychologist, so I use tightly controlled environments to identify features of situations that help us learn or influence our decisions.  My interest in dynamics, or change over time, stems for the fact that the manner in which people adapt to their circumstances is an important but often overlooked aspect of human behaviour.

In other words, my research is my attempt to answer two questions, "Why do we do what we do?" and "How do we do what we do?" The "Why" question is one of motivation. I am particularly interested in what motivates our behaviour and how that changes depending on the circumstances we are in. The "How" question is one of behaviour dynamics, or how behaviour changes over time. By paying attention to how behaviour changes, we can make important distinctions between behaviors, e.g., what we call 'confidence' or 'certainty' can be seen in how quickly and smoothly a person responds to a request.  Click here to see some of my research at the RISK lab exhibition in the Science Gallery at TCD.

Here in NUI Galway, I am a member of the Brain and Behaviour research stream in the School of Psychology and the COmplex Systems REsearch Centre (CORE). I also work with the Whitaker Institute and the Galway Neuroscience Centre and DERI, the Digital Enterprise Research Institute.

Applied Interests In addition to my laboratory research, I collaborate with other scientists and professionals to apply my research in organizational settings.  Most organizations seek to identify effective decision making and to encourage it. 

I also speak to non-psychology audiences on organizational issues (check out the BMT leadership conferences here and a recent paper from Irish Ergonomics Review here). My work on learning has also been applied in special educational settings. In my experience, a little behavioural psychology can make a big difference.

(2013) Dynamics of Social Behaviour: An introduction to novel quantitative techniques to record and analyse social behaviour online and offline,
Denis O'Hora, Jon Freeman (Dartmouth College), Chris Kello (UC Merced), Fred Cummins (UCD), Maciej Dabrowski (DERI), Davdi Crowley (DERI) (2013) Human behaviour is fundamentally social. Even when isolated, our concerns relate to the concerns of others and are articulated through a language created with others. The quantitative analysis of social behaviour raises some particular difficult challenges, with the result that much behavioural science focuses on the behaviour of single individuals in isolation. Recent advances in computing and mathematics provide new avenues through which to record, characterise and analyse social behaviour. These advances allow us to conceive of novel metaphors that can be applied to human social behaviour; detailed models that are carefully constructed and tested. This workshop will focus on novel dynamical models of human social cognition and behaviour and specifically on techniques to capture complex human activity and to quantitatively analyse it.
