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 centred on the development of an adaptive digital video decoder (see publications/patents for more exciting detail). 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.
