About Peter O'reilly

Peter O'Reilly* is a PhD Student in Work Science, with a focus on employee well-being and office workspace design, since Autumn 2017. 


Peter has a BA (hons) in Social Sciences, majoring in Psychology, from University of Leicester, an MSc. in Communication Science from University of Gothenburg with specialisation in Intercultural Communication and Nonverbal Behaviour, and an MSc. in Psychology from Lund University (including a Nordplus exchange with University of Copenhagen) with specialisation in Personality and Work & Organisational Psychlogy.

Current Research

Peter's PhD project investigates human-environment interaction and explores how office workspace design influences employee well-being. The role that biophilia, nature-based interventions, and personalization may play in office workspaces is also examined alongside a focus upon mixed methods being employed with applied aspirations.
