Academic biography

Dr. Morrin works in the field of electroanalytical device development for environmental and biomedical sensing applications and has published 42 research papers and 3 book chapters in fields ranging from electrochemical biosensing to novel nanomaterials.

She is an academic member of the National Centre for Sensor Research (NCSR). Her expertise is in developing and studying functional (and stimuli-responsive) materials with improved performances due, for example, to nanostructuring, compositing or printing as functional inks. Integration of these materials into microfluidic platforms for electroanalytical applications including bio- and immuno-sensing and chromatography are of interest.

Dr Morrin currently holds a Career Development Award from SFI worth 0.5 million Euro to develop research in the area of skin diagnostics. Moreover, Dr. Morrin has extensive experience in managing projects being Principle Investigator in a number of national and international grants (over €2 million in total) and is involved in research with industry, for example, through the IRC-employment-based postgraduate programme with T.E. laboratories.
