Currently Principal Investigator on EU AAL funded Join-In Project. The Join-In project addresses the issues of social isolation, as well as cognitive and physical decline in elderly citizens using serious computer gaming and exergaming. This includes the supervision of two M.Sc. research students in conjunction with Ross Palmer and Dr Daire O’Broin of IT Carlow.

See http://join-in-for-all.eu for more information with regard to this project.

Research Interests - Including but not limited to the following:

  • Computer Games Development
  • Ambient Assisted Living
  • Data mining
  • Software Engineering

Supervision of M.Sc. and Ph.D. level research on the construction and validation of a numerical tensiotrace simulation model and the investigation of a modelling platform for the fingerprinting of wine.  This work was completed in conjunction with Dr Norman McMillan, Senior Lecturer (emeritus), Institute of Technology and Prof. Stephen A Smith, University of Essex (emeritus). This project was undertaken with TSR Strand 1 Funding and IRCSET Embark Initiative Funding.

Doctoral research into novel data mining algorithms for UV-visible spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, tensiography and telecommunications is ongoing under the supervision of Dr Norman McMillan, Senior Lecturer, Institute of Technology Carlow and Professor Fionn Murtagh, Head of Dept of Computer Science., Royal Holloway University London and Director Information, Communications & Emergent Technologies Directorate, Science Foundation Ireland.
