Biography

Pat Shannon joined the academic staff of UCD in 1983 having worked at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, the Geological Survey of Ireland and the Petroleum Affairs Division of the Department of Energy. His was Head of the School of Geological Sciences (and previously the Department of Geology) from 1999 until September 2007.  He set up and leads the Marine and Petroleum Geology Research Group and is involved in various aspects of research from basin analysis and petroleum exploration to Neogene sedimentology. Pat is Chair of the Royal Irish Academy Geosciences Committee. He is also a member of the Senate of the National University of Ireland and was a member of the Governing Authority of UCD (2006-2014). His main interests outside Geology are sea fishing (mostly spent untangling fishing lines) and helping to run his local football club (where he is Club President). However, he does not yet intend to give up the day job for the glamour of full time football management.
