Eamonn Kenny
Research Fellow, Computer Science

Biography

In 1995 Eamonn joined TCD as a research assistant in the Framework Program 4 (FP4) EU project STORMS producing the propagation models for UMTS systems. From 2001-2003 he completed a PhD in Telecommunications funded by the Enterprise Ireland Informatics Programme. From 2003-2010 he worked on the portability of the Grid middleware for the Large Hadron Collider in CERN. In 2007, he was invited to become the portability coordinator for the gLite middleware FP7 consortium in EGEE-II/III. From 2010-2013 he worked as the metrics task leader for the quality assurance team of the FP7 European Middleware Initiative. His research to date covers the areas of numerical analysis, radio wave propagation, algorithms, portability, system building and statistics. He recently worked on producing a complete interaction framework/middleware as a research fellow in the Adapt Centre.

His most recent project involves providing geospatial processing components for producing input data for deep learning image processing architectures for a leading irish company in the digital space. His primary focus is now on automated data provisioning for deep networks in image processing.

He is also in the process of producing two startup companies using NLP+Deep Nets+Image processing and using a phased array antenna system for people tracking.
