Biography

Professor Joe Carthy holds a BSc and PhD in Computer Science and a Graduate Diploma in University Teaching and Learning from UCD. He has been a UCD academic for over 30 years. He was appointed College Principal and Dean of Science in 2011, having previously served as Head of the School of Computer Science and Informatics for four years. He was first elected to the Governing Authority in 2012 and re-elected in 2013. He served as Head of the School of Computer Science and Informatics from 2007 to 2011. 

Professor Carthy has a strong record in winning funding for research activities and together with colleagues has been awarded more than 5.4 million Euro for research projects. He is the founding Director of the UCD Centre for Cybersecurity and Cybercrime Investigation which has established strong links with international law enforcement agencies and international organisations such as Europol, Interpol and the  UNODC. He has also supervised/co-supervised 14 PhD and 20 MSc Research students to completion. 

He remains active in undergraduate teaching, delivering two undergraduate modules in the current academic year. In addition, together with colleagues in UCD, he has won in excess of 1.8 million Euro for education projects.

Professor Carthy has served as chair and member of many university committees, task forces and advisory groups over the years covering such areas as e-learning, timetabling, postgraduate affairs, QA/QI, RAM, IT Strategy, Assessments, Student Support, and Seed Funding.
 
Professor Carthy is a director and former chair of Camara, a not-for-profit organisation which refurbishes and sends computers from Ireland to schools and other educational institutions in Africa, Ireland and the Caribbean.
