Research Staff

Along with a large number of lecturers who are industry experts, the Department of Computer Science also has a growing number of lecturers who are actively involved in research and they mentor students pursuing research masters and PhD programmes. Some of these lecturers talk about their research interests below:

“My current research interests lie in the area of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and its application in the Internet of Things (IoT) environment.” Dr Olivia Brickley

"I'm working in the research area of Optimisation and Decision Analytics, more specifically in the application of combinatorial optimisation techniques to the modelling and solving of real-life green Computing-related problems." Dr Ignacio Castiñeiras

“My current research interests include cloud and online quality control, context awareness, Computing and business process methodologies, real-time and computer simulation.” Dr John Creagh

“My research involves the optimisation of Internet traffic over wireless networks. It also involves the coordination and fault tolerance in distributed systems.” Dr Paul Davern

“My current research interests include Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud information security, optimal and adaptive sensor systems, mobile sensor platforms, single board computers and robotics.” Dr Seán McSweeney

“My research interests include Big Data and Cloud Computing and their application in the life sciences and bio/agri-tech domain.” Dr Aisling O’Driscoll

“The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the ability to connect anything to the Internet, such as a watch, house, dog, car etc. Within this broad research space, my research focus is in the area of network virtualisation and service provisioning of novel IoT services.” Dr Donna O’Shea

“I’m currently involved in a range of research projects such as cost optimisation for smart micro-grids, supply chain optimization for offshore wind turbines, sentiment analysis for online bullying detection, modelling and optimization for Irish dairy-farm operation.” Dr Ted Scully

“I currently lead several EU funded projects to analyse genomic big data for agriculture, develop computer-aided assisted-living technology for dementia patients and to develop computer technology to analyse the genetics of cancer tumours.” Dr Paul Walsh, Head of CIT’s SIGMA research group
