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 Biomedical Engineering and at the Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience. He was Program Director of Education in Bioengineering at Trinity College (2012-16). 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 a Board member of the Health Products Regulatory Authority and Chair of the HPRA's Advisory Committee on Medical Device. He is Editor in Chief of the IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine. 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. He has authored and co-authored over 500 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals and conferences papers.
