I am a senior lecturer in DIT School of Computing, currently active in agri-analytics research as part of a multi-disciplinary team involving Computing, Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Environmental Health Science. I have been programme chairperson for the BSc in Computer Science (Infrastructure) and have been lecturing on data storage, use and administration. I've also lectured on programming, software engineering, data analytics and robotics. I have designed multiple modules, covering the topics mentioned and also Internet of Things and data exploration. I have supervised prize-winning students at undergraduate and Master's level. I have been very involved in outreach projects to secondary schools, particularly CanSat and DIT's Computing Academy.
