Biography

Prof. Michael Gilchrist, PhD, DEng, FIMechE, FIEI, FIMMM, FInstP, is Senior Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Head of the UCD School of Mechanical & Materials Engineering. His research concerns the dynamic mechanical behaviour of non-linear materials, including both biological tissue and polymer materials. This has applications relevant to:
* impact biomechanics of the human body,
* forensic biomechanics & engineering,
* the dynamic response of skin, bone, neural tissue,
* micro-injection moulding of polymers, and
* deformation and fracture of fibre reinforced polymer matrix composites.

Intellectual property from his research has been licensed to eight separate research groups and companies in Ireland, UK, Belgium, US, Canada and Singapore. He has been lead PI on some ¿8m of competitively won research funding and two of his former students have established start-up technology companies. He holds a Visiting Professorship at the University of Ottawa and has previously been a Visiting Professor at CNRS & ENSAM-Paris (2003-4). He has supervised 35 research students (Masters, PhDs and Postdocs) to date and has published some 150 journal articles. He is Ireland's representative to the General Assembly of IUTAM, the International Union for Theoretical & Applied Mechanics.

He is solely responsible for teaching a core Stage 1 module to all UCD Engineering students, Engineering Mechanics, and an elective Stage 4 advanced module, Polymer Processing & Composites.  He has received institutional and national awards for his teaching excellence, and various international Best Paper awards for his scholarly research.

Teaching

Teaching Philosophy

I endeavour to provide all my students with a lifelong appetite for learning, research and scholarship. My teaching philosophy is research-led and I expose my undergraduate students to the latest research challenges as faced by postgraduate students in my laboratory by direct interactions between my research and my teaching activities.
 

Enhancement of Teaching

I have taught all stages of undergraduate and postgraduate students. This requires that my teaching approach is versatile when interacting with each group of students. I always facilitate their preparation for and revision of my lectures by making my lecture notes, tutorial assignments, and laboratory material available ahead of time online via Blackboard. Most recently, I have created new tutorial styles of learning suitable for large classes (285 students) via a suite of 26 online video podcasts. I seek to continuously enhance the quality of my teaching activities, in order to enrich the learning experience of my students. At the start of each lecture, I summarise the salient points from the previous lecture and outline issues to be discussed. During lectures I encourage my students to add to their notes by making additional points, thereby engaging actively in the learning process and obtaining added value from my lectures. I conclude each lecture by reviewing the key points. I always treat students respectfully and as responsible adults and encourage them to pose questions or discussion points during lectures. I foster an approachable style through an "open door" policy and use anonymous appraisal sheets to review course content and lecturing ability for all my courses. This valuable feedback is informative when I update my course content and delivery methods for the following academic year. I also allocate time annually to reviewing the latest textbooks and teaching materials to ensure that my students have library access to the best material possible.

Review and Enhancement of Curriculum

I was personally responsible for leading two successful accreditation reviews (2000 and 2006) of the BE mechanical engineering degree programme by Engineers Ireland. This involved writing and collating all submission documentation (multiple volume documents), and in coordinating all academic staff during panel visitations by the professional body. At a module level, I have been solely responsible for creating and delivering new core and elective modules that either replaced outdated modules or addressed important niche opportunities in UCD's engineering degree programmes: 1. Mechanics for Engineers, MEEN10030 (260-285 students) 2. Advanced Composites and Polymer Engineering, MEEN40110 (10-50 students) Innovatively for both of these modules, I created active learning project-based sessions for groups of students that are integrated with the delivery of a parallel set of formal lectures. In addition to the deep technical learning that my students obtain from these project-based sessions, this also helps to prepare them for future careers in industry. This particular style of course delivery is highly intensive and demanding of my time. I am proud of the fact that I received two competitive awards (Euro12k; Euro86k) from national bodies (NAIRTL, 2009; HEA, 2001) for my pioneering work on these two modules: these funded the necessary capital equipment to create these project-based sessions. I am also proud that within UCD, I was awarded a President's Excellence in Teaching Award (2009) for my T&L curriculum enhancements, i.e., the project-based innovations I introduced into my MEEN10030 module. Through my elective module (MEEN40110), I involve my undergraduate students in the leading-edge of polymer engineering research, which is now moving into areas of miniaturization, micro-injection moulding, and of nano-reinforced polymers. Together, we have published 13 articles in scientific journals (c.f. publications B14, B21, B33, C34, E13) and at international conferences (c.f., publications K15, K36, K48, K53, K59, K119, K144, K148).

Developing as a Teacher

As a senior academic representing my School on my College's committee for Teaching & Learning, I firmly believe that it is important to consider the pedagogic aspects of my teaching and my research. Reflecting on the nature of university teaching helps me to develop a mature perspective on my student interactions and to ensure that my teaching is of the highest quality. It also helps me to consider how my teaching can influence my research. I keep up to date with curriculum developments and the latest teaching methods by regularly attending seminars and workshops, including those in UCD (Centre for Teaching & Learning). I have also participated as a speaker at specialist educational conferences organised by international engineering organizations including IMechE, IEEE and IUTAM and have published pedagogy articles in leading journals and at international conferences (c.f., publications A3, B49, K38, K102, K103, K141). This aspect of my activity has enabled me to lead discussions on the value of group assignments and the inclusion of undergraduate engineering students in research-led, project-based learning activities. These teaching methods reinforce students' understanding of fundamental concepts, engage them in industry problems and research activities, and enhance the "soft" skills also required of engineers.

Innovation & Leadership

I believe passionately in academics having appropriate balance between their research and teaching activities. This balance enhances my research and the training I can provide to my postgraduate students, many of whom have progressed to academic positions around the world. It also provides an enriched learning experience for my undergraduate students, with whom I have coauthored many research papers. I have been honoured with UCD and national awards for my teaching (UCD President's Teaching Excellence Award, 2009; NAIRTL Award, 2009).
