Head Of Discipline Paul Stacey

Paul received a Higher Diploma in Applied Electronic Engineering in 2000, a BEng (Hons) in Electrical & Electronic Engineering (majoring in Control Engineering) in 2002, and an MPhil in 2004 from the Dublin Institute of Technology. Paul subsequently received a PhD from TU Dublin in geospatial informatics and information science in 2021. Paul’s PhD work investigated translation methodologies of interoperability and data standardisation techniques developed within health informatics to geospatial based IoT and in-situ remote monitoring systems.

Paul is currently the Head of Mechatronics Engineering, within the School of Mechanical Engineering at Technological University Dublin, where he manages a portfolio of interdisciplinary Engineering programmes in the areas of Mechatronics Engineering, Automation & Robotics, Data Centre Operations and Sustainable Heating. Paul manages several teams across the TU Dublin campuses of Bolton Street and Blanchardstown. Additionally, Paul represents TU Dublin on the Education Committee of the European University of Technology (EUT+) and is TU Dublin’s principal contact for the Joint European Degree label in Engineering (JEDI) initiative.

Prior to his current position, Paul has previously held the positions of Head of Department of Engineering, Horticulture and Trades at TU Dublin, as well as Senior Lecturer in Engineering and chair of the MEng in Internet of Things Technologies at the Institute of Technology Blanchardstown (ITB). Prior to joining TU Dublin, Paul worked as a Marine Systems Design Engineer with Dublin based SME TechWorks Marine, an R&D Telecoms Design Engineer with LMI Ericsson and a Radio Communications Technician at BP Multipage.

Paul’s research interests are in the areas of interoperability, data & information standardisation, and knowledge engineering techniques in technologically constrained systems (IoT systems), cyber physical systems and Digital Twins systems. Paul is a founding member of the newly established pan EUT+/European research group POSTLab (People Oriented Smart Technologies Lab) and is also a member of the tPOT research group at TU Dublin. Paul has been involved with international standardisation activities for many years through the National Standards of Ireland (NSAI). Since June 2023, Paul has acted as chair of the national mirror committee on Internet of Things and Digital Twin, and has acted as Irish head of delegation for several ISO/IEC international plenary meetings on IoT and Digital Twin.
