I am a lecturer in the Department of Computer Science, at Trinity College, Dublin.

Before joining the department, from the beginning of 1999 until October 2001, I was a research fellow on the European Union TMR Project TACIT (Theory and Applications of Continuous Interaction Techniques). For the first six months of the project I was working with Dr. Giorgio Faconti at Istituto CNUCE (now part of ISTI) of the Italian Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, at Pisa. Following this I was based at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire with Dr. Michael Wilson. The project involved collaboration with researchers based in a number of European locations, from Computer Science, Engineering and Psychology backgrounds, with a focus on novel and emerging technologies where interaction between user and system is of a continuous nature.

From 1995-1998 I was a research student at the Department of Computer Science, University of York . My research was conducted in the Human Computer Interaction group , under Prof. Michael Harrison. I was awarded a D.Phil. in 1998 for my thesis, entitled “A Pragmatic Approach to the Formal Specification of Interactive Systems”.

From 1991-1995 I studied at the Department of Computer Science at Trinity College Dublin , graduating with First Class Honours. While I was a student there I won a Foundation Scholarship.
