My Biography

I joined the lecturing staff at Waterford Institute of Technology in 1994. My current role is senior lecturer in the department of Engineering Technology where I am engaged in a variety of activities including teaching, supervision and research.

1990 M.Eng. University of Limerick

1984 B.Eng. NIHE Limerick

Currently registered as a doctoral candidate with University of Limerick

Research

Research and Research Supervision: Microelectronics & Sensor Systems Research Group. This group researches & develops analogue and mixed signal integrated circuit solutions primarily in the area of analogue signal processing systems and data converter architectures. More recently research activity in the group has concentrated on programmable mixed signal sysems particularly in the area of sensor signal conditioning systems. Masters students who complete their research projects in the group are awarded the Master of Engineering degree in Electronic Engineering. Currently there is one student registered as a doctoral student.

Teaching

Senior Lecturer in Electronic Engineering at WIT in the areas of MOS Integrated Circuit Design, Mixed Signal Circuit Design, Analogue Circuit Design, Sensors and Signal Conditioning, Embedded mixed signal system design.

Professional

1985-1994 Research and Development Engineer, Analog Devices, Limerick

1984-1985 Computer Design Engineer, American Microcomputers, Pierse St. Dublin.
