Assistant Professor in Civil Engineering, UCD. Interested in the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics for the Built Environment, particularly wind analysis. Head of Teaching and Learning, completed Professional Diploma in Higher Education, Programme Director for Dual Columbia-UCD ME in Civil Engineering. Teaching focuses on building working relationships between engineers and architects. Consultant with Arup, Chartered Engineer with Engineers Ireland. I graduated with a first-class honours B.E. (Civil) degree in 2011, winning the Roughan and O’Donovan prize for my research thesis. I was awarded a PhD in 2014 for my thesis entitled ‘The Use of Instrumented Vehicles for Drive-by Damage Detection in Bridges’, funded by US-Ireland NSF-SFI partnership funding, with partners in Queens University Belfast and the University of Alabama. Following this, I practiced as a Bridge Engineer in Arup Dublin where I designed bridges for the M17-M18 motorway in the west of Ireland. I then transferred to the Arup Computational Fluid Dynamics team where I worked on many national and international projects in the areas of wind modelling, fire and smoke modelling, and thermal performance modelling. I returned to academia in 2017 as an Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering in UCD.
