Biography

Jamie has over 14 years of experience in consultancy, construction, expert advisory work and research on many projects worldwide. Jamie is a chartered engineer and has worked as a consultant on both national and international projects. Jamie's research activities spans a wide range of areas, including (i) lifecycle assessment; (ii) energy efficient buildings; (iii) marine renewable energy; (iv) earthquake engineering; (v) structural engineering; (vi) sustainable construction technologies, and (vii) systems modelling of the built environment. He is author or co-author of more than 65 publications in international peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings, with a H-index of 8. He has been principal investigator on over 20 research projects in the past 6 years (total project value €33.7M), having secured approximately €3 million in research income from national, European and international finding sources for NUI Galway, in addition to receiving funding as a collaborator for an EU FP7 project (worth €250,000) and as a funded investigator in the €25M SFI MaREI research centre. He has won awards for both his research and teaching activities (greater than 20 awards). Jamie has graduated 2 doctorates and 3 research masters. He is currently sole or principle supervisor for 10 PhD students, 1 research masters student and a postdoctoral researcher. He has acted as a peer reviewer of numerous international journals (more than 10) and project proposals, as well as acting on the scientific committee for 8 conferences. He is the programme director for BSc in Project and Construction Management at NUI Galway and has acted as an external examiner in a number of universities. He is actively involved in the engineering professional body in Ireland, Engineers Ireland, and together with his students undertakes many outreach activities with the local, national and international communities. He is also one of the main contributors to the Joint FP6 Project report on ' Seismic behaviour of steel and composite bracing members: Shake table and static tests' and the FP7 Project report on 'Brace Response and Assessment: Computation, Experiments and Design (BRACED)', which were submitted to the European commission to improve the European Seismic Design Code, Eurocode 8.
