Biography

Professor Conor Heneghan received his PhD from Columbia University, New York in 1995 for work entitled "Applications of Wavelet Analysis to Biological Sensory Systems" (thesis adviser: Prof. M. C. Teich). He subsequently worked as a post-doctoral research scientists at Boston University's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and as The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary's Director of Tele-Informatics before joining UCD's Electronic and Electrical Engineering in October 1997 as College Lecturer. He was appointed to Senior Lecturer in 2003  and Associate Professor in 2005. He was the co-founder of BiancaMed in 2003, a UCD campus company which was acquired by ResMed in 2011. He continues to act as Chief Engineer in ResMed Sensor Technologies in Dublin. His research and professional interests are in biomedical signal processing, and in particular the areas of sleep and respiration monitoring.
