Received with distinction Technician Diploma in Applied Sciences (Physics option) in 2000 from DIT Kevin Street. My growing interest in Physics lead me to complete a Bachelor of Arts degree in Physics and Physics Technology, from DIT Kevin Street in 2002 in which I completed a final year thesis on the use of Carbon nanotubes for molecuar Recognition under the supervison of Prof. Hugh Byrne and Dr Theresa Hedderman. Research became my calling and I received my PhD in Physics, from DIT Kevin Street in 2006 with a research thesis entitled "Structure Property Relationships in Pi Conjugated Organic ", supervised by Prof. Hugh J. Byrne.


Principal Research Interests:

  • Elucidation and optimisation of photohphysical processes in organic polymers
  • Investigation of potential inorganic therapeutics with a view to optimiaation of favourable characteristics for both photo-dynamic and metastatic properties.
  • Atomic Force Microscopy
  • Raman Spectroscopy
  • Transient Spectroscopy
