About

I currently hold a position of Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the National Centre for Geocomputation at NUI Maynooth, Ireland. Upon completion of my post-primary education I spent 5 years working in retail management followed by 4 years in IT; commissioning retail business management systems and training clients. In 2001 I commenced a 4 year undergraduate degree in Computer Science and Software Engineering. During my final year I was successfully awarded both the Embark Initiative IRCSET Research Grant and the NUIM John and Pat Hume Scholarship to undertake a PhD in a computer science field. During my undergraduate period I developed a close affiliation with the National Institute for Regional and Spatial Analysis (NIRSA), at NUIM, through two internships I won in 2004 and 2005. I developed two web applications, a census data access portal and a census data mapping portal, for the NUIM Intranet, and a research photography archive system (http://www.photoarchive.ie). I currently maintain these when required. In 2005 the National Centre for Geocomputation (NCG) was set-up in NUIM through Science Foundation Ireland funding and it is through here that I undertook my PhD. I completed it in October 2009; my thesis title is 'Linking Spatial Video and GIS' (http://eprints.nuim.ie/1828/). Since completion of my PhD I have worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at NCG on two research strands. One being the commissioning of the Geographically Weighted Regression software, 'GWR4', and the development of its web interface (http://gwr.nuim.ie). The other, ongoing work, is in the development of a large scale cloud based Mobile Mapping System spatial data handling framework.
