Professor of Neural Engineering at Trinity College, a joint position between the School of Medicine and School of Engineering. A Principal Investigator at the Trinity Centre for Bioengineering and at the Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience. He is Program Director of Education in Bioengineering at Trinity College. His research focuses on the processing of signals that diagnose the human physiological and cognitive state: non-invasive electrophysical biomarkers for cognitive function, patient-oriented neurodiagnostics methods, neural prosthetics and therapeutic neuromodulation devices. He is a member of the Royal Irish Academy and a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. He is currently the President of the European Society of Engineering and Medicine, a member of the Board of Tallaght Hospital in Dublin and a member of the Health Products Regulatory Authority of Ireland's Advisory Committee on Medical Device. In 2004, he was awarded a US Fulbright Award for research collaboration into multisensory integration with the Nathan Kline Institute for Psychiatric Research, New York. He is a former Silvanus P. Thompson International Lecturer for the Institution of Engineering and Technology. He has established two companies based on his research activities. Professor Reilly received his BE degree in Electronic Engineering, an MEngSc and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from University College Dublin. He has authored and co-authored 346 publications in peer reviewed scientific journals and conferences.
