I am an assistant professor in the School of Computer Science in University College Dublin. I teach in the Beijing-Dublin International College (a joint college with Beijing University of Technology) on both the Internet of Things Engineering and Software Engineering degree courses. I am a funded investigator on the Crop Optimisation through Sensing, Understanding and Visualisation (CONSUS) project and am affiliated with the CeADAR Centre for Applied Data Analytics and the UCD Forensics and Security Research Group. My principal research interests are in the areas of data analytics, information retrieval, digital forensics, multi agent systems, and wireless sensor networks.
ACRE (Agent Conversation Reasoning Engine) was the subject of my PhD thesis, which was entitled ``Internalising Interaction Protocols as First-Class Programming Elements in Multi Agent Systems''. I have also contributed to the Agent Factory and ASTRA projects.
I worked as a Research Assistant investigating the applicability of data fusion in Information Retrieval as part of the SIFT project. My MSc thesis was written while working as part of the HOTAIR Project (Highly Organised Teams of Agents for Information Retrieval), which was affiliated to the Intelligent Information Retrieval Group (IIRG).
In addition to the MSc, I also hold a Higher Diploma in Computer Science from UCD and a BA (Hons) in Law and Accounting from the University of Limerick. My Final Year Project was an investigation into the tort of Defamation on the Internet.
I have lectured in UCD, Griffith College Dublin and Fudan University, Shanghai, China. I was Local Organising Chair for the AmI-2013 conference and was a member of the Organising Committee for the ICEP conference from 2009 to 2012.
