Post Doc Research Fellow Lvl I

School Of Electrical & Electronic Eng
Science Centre
Dublin 4



Clare Davidson holds a postdoctoral research position at the Insight Centre for Data Analytics, O'Brien Centre for Science, University College Dublin. Dr Davidson completed a B.Sc. in Physiology in 2004 at University College Dublin, and received B.E. and Ph.D. degrees from the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University College Dublin, in 2010 and 2014 respectively. Her PhD research focused on the application of control theory to computational models of the brain in Parkinson's disease, and deep brain stimulation. Dr Davidson's current research involves the analysis of non-invasively recorded physiological signals, with applications in the areas of both healthcare and sport.
