About Me

Currently, I am a PhD student in the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Queen’s University Belfast in Northern Ireland. Before commencing my PhD, I attained a first-class honours MEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from QUB; my MEng project focused on the development of a modular wireless sensor system for use in long-term civil structural health monitoring applications.

Previously, I have worked in industry during my Master’s (both during my placement year and part-time during my studies) focusing on embedded software engineering targetting network processors for telecommunications systems. Additionally, I am currently the IET Northern Ireland Local Network Secretary, previously having been the Young Professionals NI Chair, and was a founding committee member of the IET OnCampus group at QUB.

Outside of my academic and industry roles, I am a qualified angling coach and have held a leadership role for four years within a local community-based organisation using angling to promote positive social development.

Research

My research interests lie in the development of Structural Health Monitoring approaches which are more robust to real-world confounding effects.

My research tackles this challenge from a multidisciplinary perspective, looking at creating innovative sensor hardware and data analytics systems utilising my background as an electronics and software engineer.
