Dr. Linda Doyle

Provost (Provost's Office)


Linda Doyle is the Vice President for Research/Dean of Research in Trinity College Dublin and has been in this role since January 2018. She is Professor of Engineering and The Arts. Her expertise is in the fields of wireless communications, cognitive radio, reconfigurable networks, spectrum management and creative arts practices. She has raised over 70 million in research funding and has published widely in her field. She is a Fellow of Trinity College Dublin. Professor Doyle was the founder Director of the SFI Research Centre CONNECT. CONNECT is a national research centre focused on telecommunications. As Director of CONNECT Linda developed the centre's fundamental and applied research programme taking a multidisciplinary approach constructed around different network types - low energy, dense, shared, converged, moving, and nano networks. Linda grew CONNECT to a centre of over 250 researchers, spread across 10 Higher Education Institutions around Ireland, and built over 35 research partnerships with industry. During her tenure as Director of CONNECT she led many flagship projects, including the conceiving and delivery of Pervasive Nation. Pervasive Nation is a nationwide low power wide area network dedicated to 'testing the future of Internet of Things in Ireland'. An academic testbed spanning a whole country is an ambitious project and the only one of its kind globally, with testbeds of this nature normally run by industry. Prior to CONNECT Prof. Doyle was the Director of the Centre for Telecommunications Value Chain Research (CTVR) for 6 years. She built CTVR into a vibrant national research centre with a clear focus on future wireless and fixed networks around a coherent research vision for the centre focused on 'Design for Change' and the creation of flexible, evolvable and sustainable network architectures. Prof. Doyle has a reputation as an advocate for change in spectrum management practices and has played a role in spectrum policy at the national and international level. Currently she is a member of the National Broadband Steering Committee in Ireland, and is Chair of the Ofcom Spectrum Advisory Board in the UK. Prof. Doyle has been combining creative arts practices with Engineering for many years. To this end she founded the Orthogonal Methods Group (OMG) a research initiative that works in critical and creative tension with technology with the purpose of generating knowledges, insights and alternative research orientations across disciplines that are sometimes perceived to be mutually exclusive. As part of OMG she created the posts of writer in residence, visual artist in residence, and curator in residence all housed within Engineering and Computer Science research labs. In 2017 OMG celebrated the 50 years anniversary of the famous Experiments in Art & Technology (E.A.T) led by Bell Labs in the 1960s, through their own exhibition responding to the work in the prestigious Irish Museum of Modern Art. Linda is on the Board of the Festival of Curiosity, a yearly cultural feast of science, arts, design & technology for all ages attracting over 50,000 participants and has in fact been involved since its inception. She has been the Chair of the Board of the Douglas Hyde Gallery since 2013 and also sits on the Board of Pallas Project Studios. Linda is a judge in the BT Young Scientist, Ireland's premier science competition for school children. Prof. Doyle has always taken a strong role in promoting women in Engineering & Computer Science. She has been involved in numerous initiatives such Girls in Tech, Teen Turn, HerStory (histories of women scientists) etc. In 2017 she was recognised as one of the 10 women stars working in networking and communications in the world that you should know. Professor Doyle has given in excess of 100 keynotes and invited talks at various events around the world. Prof. Doyle is a Director of Software Radio Systems and Xcelerit, two CTVR/CONNECT spin-outs
