Biography

Graduated from Dublin City University (DCU) with a BSc(Hons) in Analytical Science 1988 and a PhD in Electrochemistry 1992 under the supervision of (now) Prof Dermot Diamond.  Employed in the Food Research Centre (Teagasc) as a researcher investigating residues of controlled and banned substances in food and food products by GC-MS and LC-MS. Took up a position in the Forensic Science Laboratory, Phoenix Park, Dublin as a Forensic Scientist with responsibility for analysis and reporting of  illegal drug casework.  Moved to Sligo in 1998 taking up a position in the invitro diagnostics industry as a QA Team Leader.  Eventually moved to the Quality Systems area in the role of Quality System Manager .
In 2007 took up an academic post in the School of Science as a Lecturer in Forensic Science on the Forensic Investigation and Analysis programmes (Level 7 and Level 8).

Research Interests

  • Analytical Chemistry related to inorganic analysis of marine bathwater and seaweed by spectroscopy.
  • Forensic science related to the frequency of occurrence and persistence of different forensic materials on typical casework items e.g. blood on clothes and shoes and persistence studies of glitter of a variety of surfaces.
