Mechanical Design Engineer, PhD Researcher
I’m from Donegal. I graduated with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering in 2015. During my undergraduate studies, I took part in the GEEC project (http://thegeec.ie/ ) for the European Shell Eco Marathon (see image attached).
This is a competition where Engineering students throughout Europe design cars and compete in a competition for the most energy efficient car.
As part of my undergraduate studies, I undertook a work placement in Abbott Diabetes Care. This sparked an interest for me in Medical Device Engineering.
After university, I moved back to Donegal to work as a Mechanical Design Engineer in Randox Teoranta.
Here, I worked in the design of clinical chemistry analysers. During this time I also undertook a higher diploma in Software Engineering, part time, from NUIG.
I returned to Galway in 2017 to do a PhD in Mechanical Engineering. I am currently in year 3 of my PhD. My PhD involves developing software on a particle-based CFD method, the finite volume particle method (FVPM).
