Since September 2003 I've been a College Lecturer (and Senior Lecturer since October 2008) in the School of Computer Science and Informatics at University College Dublin. Before then I was a working in Pierre Baldi's group at University of California, Irvine, where it was a little bit dryer than in Dublin, but Guinness tasted remarkably foul.I am the head of the AmMBio lab, which has employed up to two postdoctoral fellows and ten postgraduate students, funded through a number of grants from Science Foundation Ireland, the Health Research Board of Ireland, the Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering and Technology (IRCSET) and UC Dublin.
