Biographical Details:


Dr. Dermot Brabazon (BE, PhD, CEng, MIEI, MIoM, MIMechE) graduated from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University College Dublin in 1995 and continued on at UCD to complete his doctorate in the area of semi-solid metal processing. From 1995 to 2000 he worked with Materials Ireland, a state funded research centre at UCD. During this period he developed a number of unique materials tests, in particular for biotechnology companies in Ireland. He has been a full time lecturer in the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at Dublin City University since February 2000. He was appointed Senior Lecturer in 2007 and Associate Dean for Reaserch in 2009. Dermot was also conferred with the Presidents Award for research in January 2009.


Research Interests:
