I am from Stillorgan, Dublin, Ireland.
I graduated from the Dublin Institute of Technology in 1984 with a B.Sc.(Eng)
in Electrical/Electronic Engineering. After graduation I joined Sony
Broadcast and Communications Ltd based in Basingstoke, England.
I spent seven years with Sony, two and a half years of which was in Atsugi, Japan
(Sony's largest R&D centre). Most of my work with Sony was in the area of
adaptive digital video signal processing.
In 1991 I resigned my position as senior R&D Engineer with Sony and
returned to Ireland
and worked as a Digital Signal Processing (DSP) consultant and also as a
part-time lecturer in the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT). In 1994 I
took up a full-time lecturing position with the DIT. During my time with the
DIT I completed a PhD in Digital Audio Signal Processing.
In 2001 I left the DIT and took up a lecturing position in the Department
of Electronic Engineering at NUI, Maynooth.
