I am a current BE (Biomedical Engineering) student, researching the area of 3D printing for development in the field of orthotics and prosthetics under the supervision of Dr.O’Cearbhaill. I have been predominantly focusing upon integration of CAD/CAM technology to facilitate improvements in the production of orthoses. This has included in-depth analysis of the parameters influencing fused deposition modeling (FDM) samples, in addition to investigation of novel 3D printing materials.
I take my spare time to enjoy the sporting facilities in UCD, regularly playing basketball and gaelic football for college teams. I additionally enjoy experiencing art and music events that Dublin has to offer.
