Dr. Declan O'Loughlin

Assistant Professor (Electronic & Elect. Engineering)

 


Declan O'Loughlin is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin, Ireland since November 2020. He received the BE and PhD degrees in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the National University of Ireland Galway, Ireland in 2014 and 2018 respectively, where his doctoral research focused on investigating the performance of radar-based breast imaging in diverse patient populations. Prior to joining Trinity, Dr O'Loughlin was an Irish Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow co-funded by Microwave Vision SA, France and an Adjunct Lecturer at NUI Galway, Ireland working on imaging algorithm development for the novel breast imaging system Wavelia®. His research interests are the use of electronics and electromagnetics for medical device applications. Dr O'Loughlin has received a number of national and international awards including the Irish Research Council (IRC) New Foundations Award, the Irish-Canada University Foundation (ICUF) James M. Flaherty Scholarship and the International Union of Radio Science (URSI) Young Scientist Award. He is a Member of Engineers Ireland, a Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and a Senior Member of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI).

Declan O'Loughlin's research interests centre around the use of electronics and electromagnetics for biomedical applications. In particular, his research interests include identifying and accounting for variances between patients in bioelectronic medical devices, such as variances between the dielectric properties of tissues of interest and in the size and shape of targets of interest.
