Other Activities

• I am a member of the Irish Committee for the International Hydrology Programme (IHP-UNESCO) and the International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage (IAHS).
• I was a member of the organising and programme committees for the IWA International Conference on Diffuse Pollution (DIPCON) held in Dublin in the summer of 2003. I edited the Proceedings (printed and CDROM) and am currently, as a guest editor, preparing a special issue of Water Science and Technology, based on the Conference papers.
• I was an invited lecturer on EU funded International course on River Basin Modelling, held at the University of Birmingham. [ lectured on decision support systems and flood forecasting]
¿ I am a member of the board of the UCD Earth Institute
• I was part of an INTERREG team investigating the bacteriological characteristics from agricultural catchments during storms and their possible influence on bathing water quality.
• I was course coordinator of the M.Sc.(Water Resources Engineering) degree programme at the University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania (1985 - 1990). This was part of UNESCO's ANSTI programme and was part of Ireland's Bilateral aid programme.
• I was creator and co-ordinator of research project TELFLOOD which was selected for funding under DG XII Environment and Climate Research and Development Programme. This project brought together a team of hydrologists and meteorologists from Ireland, Sweden and Italy. It was rated in the highest category in the evaluation process and was selected for funding up to 350,000 ECU. The project is developing methods for linking together meteorological, hydrological and hydraulic models in order to forecast flash floods in steep catchments which drain through urban areas
• From 1993 to 1997 I was Director of the M. Eng. Sc. (Water Engineering ) programme in the Department of Civil Engineering, UCD. My duties included all aspects of the organisation and running of this post-graduate programme, e.g. processing applications, organising lectures, arranging projects and examinations and processing results.
• I was a member of UNESCO IHP-IV Working Group E-1.2 which has prepared and published lecture notes for regional training courses for hydrology technicians.
• I was part of an Irish Government and European Union funded project involving co-operation between University College Dublin and Bethlehem University. My involvement relates to the water resources aspects of teaching and research at the University of Bethlehem and development of co-operation between them and the Palestinian Hydrology Group.
• I was a computer software Beta tester (hydraulic software) for the US Army Corps of Engineers, Water Resources Support Centre, Hydraulic Engineering Centre (HECRAS)
• I regularly review papers for the Journal of Hydrology, Hydrological Sciences Journal and Journal of Natural Hazards.
• I was a lecturer on the M.Sc. and Postgraduate Diploma Courses in Engineering Hydrology at University College Galway.
