After gaining my MSc and PhD in the atomic spectroscopy of laser produced plasmas in UCD I pursued post-doctoral research at Trinity College Dublin investigating the optical properties of novel GaN-based LEDs. From this research the company Firecomms was spun out of the Tyndall, Cork which I joined in 2002. I returned to Dublin in 2005 working for Intel until 2008 when I took up a lecturing position in UCD.
