Biography

Enda is currently the Vice-Principal for Graduate Studies and Director of the Graduate School for the College of Social Sciences and Law (CoSSL). He is also Professor of Planning at the School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy. He holds a B.A Natural Science (2002), Postgraduate Diploma in Statistics (2004) and PhD (2005) in Transportation Planning all from Trinity College Dublin (TCD). Prior to being appointed at UCD he worked as an Environmental Protection Agency and Science Foundation Ireland Research Fellow at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, TCD where he undertook research in the area of environmental acoustics. His research interests are broad in scope but centre on the areas of urban transportation and spatial planning, environmental noise, neoliberalisation and crises, and related issues. He has published widely in the international literature including, inter alia, in such journals as Environment International, Journal of Environmental Management, Transportation Research A and D, Planning Theory, Urban Studies, Town Planning Review, Geoforum, Cities and Applied Acoustics. He is author/co-author of more than 70 academic journal papers, book chapters, conference papers and reports and is co-author of two books. Enda has held visiting professor positions at the University of Economics, Ho Chi Minh City, University of Hartford, USA and Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Cape Town. He is a former Fulbright Scholar.

Research

Research Interests

Enda's research interests can be summarised along the following inter-related themes: (1) Measuring the sustainability of urban land use and transportation trends within the context of urban spatial organisation theory, locational analysis, transport and service planning; (2) Application of mathematical and spatial modelling techniques (including GIS) as decision support in urban, regional and environmental contexts; (3) Measuring human exposure to environmental noise pollution from road transport including noise mapping and measurement techniques in GIS; (4) Regional economic competitiveness within the context of the emergent 'new economy' and the 'creative class' thesis.


Enda is interested in discussing potential research topics in broadly related areas with interested students. They should contact him directly for further enquiries and potential supervision.
