Assistant Professor at the Centre for Astrophysics and Relativity (CfAR), School of Mathematical Sciences
"My research includes the problem of motion in General Relativity, including strong self-interaction effects. This is relevant for modelling binary black hole systems (where one black hole is much larger than the other). These systems are a key astrophysical source of gravitational waves and are being targeted by the European Space Agency's eLISA mission."
Assistant Professor in Business Analytics, DCU Business School
"I am working on a number of research projects on data analytics, business value of IT, FinTech, Blockchain, cloud computing, and cyber security. Many of these research projects are in direct collaboration with industry."
Assistant Professor, School of Applied Language and Intercultural Studies
"I publish, research and teach in the area of Translation - Translation technology; translation ethics; translation and sociology; machine translation; translation technology user studies for desktop and mobile; usability."
Assistant Professor in Politics of the Middle East and International Relations, School of Law and Government
"My interests include comparative politics, mobilisation, comparative governance and public policy, Middle East politics and Area studies."
Associate Professor, School of Computing
"My interests include content-based analysis and indexing of digital multimedia - principally images and video - using computer vision, machine learning and related techniques. This can be for object or event detection, segmentation, classification and/or tracking. Example applications include surveillance, document reuse (eg, lectures), traffic or instrumented vehicles, smart cities, cultural heritage, sport or entertainment. I am also interested in the consequences of biased visual datasets and models."
Associate Professor, School of Electronic Engineering
"My research interests include quality-oriented and performance-related issues of adaptive multimedia delivery, performance of wired and wireless communications, energy-aware networking and personalized technology-enhanced learning."
Programme Chair, Bachelor of Early Childhood Education Language, Literacy and Early Childhood Education
"My research interests revolve around professional practice in early childhood settings Areas include adult child interactions in settings that support children at risk of educational inequality; the use of film-stimulated reflective dialogues to enhance professional practice; conflict resolution among young children."
Associate Professor, School of Human Development
"My main research and teaching interests are currently in the areas of Philosophy of Education, Multi-Denominational Ethos and Contemporary Continental Thought."
Assistant Head for Teaching Excellence, School of Computing
"I am interested in Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL), Computer Science Education, Scholarship of Teaching and Learning and Educational Technologies, Computer Assisted Learning and Human Factors in Computing."
Assistant Professor, School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering
"My research expertise and interests include the water-energy nexus: water and wastewater treatment; thermodynamics and exergy analysis; energy auditing, modelling and benchmarking; LCA; control and automation for energy efficiency. My PhD focused on energy optimisation in the semiconductor manufacturing industry (Intel)."
Professor, School of Electronic Engineering
"I lecture in Connected Embedded Systems, Object-oriented Programming, and Digital & Analogue Electronics at postgraduate and undergraduate levels. My research interests are in the fields of Embedded Systems, Computer & Machine Vision, Graphics & Visualisation and e-Learning."
Deputy Dean, Faculty of Science and Health
"My principal research interests are General Relativity (space-time singularities and cosmic censorship; black holes; wave propagation in curved spacetimes) and Mathematics Education (third level teaching and learning; post-primary mathematics teacher education)."
Associate Professor in Elite Performance
Chair, Professional Doctorate in Elite Performance (Sport)
School of Health and Human Performance
"My research programme is focused on the broad area of talent development processes across performance domains. Although primarily developed in sport, the research has and will continue to examine these processes across multiple domains and at various levels of participation – excellence in its broadest sense from elite levels of performance through to participation."
