BIO

Interests: Eoghan researches the development of focused ground subsidence phenomena in Ireland and elsewhere. Natural phenomena include calderas in volcanic regions (e.g. Iceland, La Reunion island) and sinkholes in karst regions (e.g. Ireland, the Dead Sea). Man-made phenomena occur due to mining, groundwater pumping and hydrocarbon extraction. He is also generally interested in all things volcanic and tectonic. Biography: Eoghan graduated from Trinity College Dublin (TCD) with a B.A. in Natural Science (2002), a Diploma in Statistics (2004), and a PhD in Geology (2008). He spent one year (2006-7) as an Assistant Lecturer in structural geology in University College Dublin (UCD), and then joined the Fault Analysis Group on a IRCSET-funded post-doctoral fellowship in 2007-2009. Eoghan then won an IRCSET-Marie Curie INSPIRE international mobility fellowship (2009-2012) that facilitated a collaborative research project based at both UCD and the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) in Potsdam, Germany. He subsequently took up a research scientist position at GFZ Potsdam (2012-2015), before re-joining UCD in 2016 as a College Lecturer in structural geology and tectonics. Since July 2017, Eoghan is an associate professor of earth sciences.
