Biography

Born in Waterford I graduated with a Civil Engineering Degree from University College Dublin in 1998. Five years working as a Consultant Engineer in the UK and my PhD studies at the University of Surrey (UK) preceeded my return to UCD, as a College Lecturer, in 1996. Currently I am a Senior Lecturer, Chartered Engineer and a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers of Ireland. My primary engineering interests are in the area of Structural Engineering.
