Kevin obtained both his B.Sc. in Engineering Science and his M.E. in Biomedical Engineering from UCD. His master’s thesis was entitled ‘Design of a Needle System for Reliable Injection to a Biologic Tissue for Minimally-Invasive Surgery. He has now begun his PhD on the ‘Development of Flexible Microneedle Electrodes as Wearable Sensors for Long-term Evaluation of Dynamic Muscle Performance’ under supervision of Dr. Eoin O’Cearbhaill and Prof. Madeleine Lowery. The project is in collaboration with Professor Conor Walsh at Harvard University. He is funded by the Irish Research Council, being awarded the Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship 2015. Kevin has also been awarded a Travelling Studentship in Biomedical Engineering by the National University of Ireland in order to support spending time researching at Harvard University.
His research interests include: Biopotential Electrodes, Wearable Sensors, Signal Processing, Soft Robotics
