Biography

Oisín is lead researcher at the Centre for Applied Data Analytics Reseach (CeADAR) at UCD. His primary research interests include advanced data analytics, machine learning and recommender systems. Oisín graduated from University College Dublin with a B.Sc. (Hons.) in computer science in 2002. After working abroad as a software engineer with Thales Communications Ltd he returned to UCD to undertake a PhD in the areas of personalization and collaborative web search, supervised by Professor Barry Smyth, which he completed in 2008. Prior to his current role in UCD, Oisín worked for a number of years as senior researcher in the innovation and research team at ChanginWorlds Ltd (subsequently acquired by Amdocs Ltd) which develops personalization and analytics solutions for the telecommunications industry.
