Biography

I have 25 years experience in the area of anaerobic biofilm and microbial ecology research, focused on: anaerobic biofilm reactor technology for biorefining, energy production and wastewater treatment; Control of biofilms in infectious disease settings and the microbial ecology of anaerobic biofilms and soil ecosystems.

I have successfully and consistently secured research funding from Irish and EU programmes to a total value of €10.5m, from sources including the Irish Environmental Protection Agency, the Higher Education Authority, Enterprise Ireland, EU Framework Programmes, and the Irish Research Council. I am a Science Foundation Ireland ( www.sfi.ie ) Principal Investigator through a SFI-DEL Investigator Award and a Charles Parson Energy Research Award. I have published over 250 scientific communications, including 95 papers in leading international, peer-reviewed, journals. 

I am the Scientific lead for the Sustainability Pillar of the Dairy Processing Technology Centre (www.dptc.ie) funded by the Irish Dairy Industry and Enterprise Ireland and am actively involved in several other projects focused on
 the development of an indigenous Irish sustainable biomass and biorefining sector. My group has been heavily involved in the development and application of low-temperature anaerobic biofilm technology towards commercialisation and technology developed in my lab was the basis for the establishment of NVP Energy (www.nvpenergy.com).

I am a co-founder of a spin-out company from NUI, Galway - Westway Health, which was formed in 2012 and is focused on the development of an exciting and novel antimicrobial platform for infection control in veterinary and human settings (www.westwayhealth.com).

I teach microbiology and environmental biotechnology to undergraduate and postgraduate students at all levels, and I am head of the School of Natural Sciences.

Research Interests

Biofilm and microbial ecology. Focus areas: anaerobic biofilm reactor technology for biorefining, energy production and wastewater  the microbial ecology of anaerobic biofilms and soil ecosystems; biofilm infection control.

I
also have a strong interest in translational aspects of research and a low-temperature anaerobic process, developed in NUIG, is currently being commercialised as part of a spin-out company. I am the Sustainability Pillar lead in the Dairy Processing Technology Centre, which works on behalf of Irish enterprises to develop the indigenous environmental technology sector.
