I am currently working as an Assistant Professor in the School of Electronic Engineering at Dublin City University (DCU). I received my B. Eng (1st Hons, ranked 1st) in Electronic Engineering from the National University of Ireland Maynooth in 2011 and my Ph.D. from the Hamilton Institute at the same university in 2015 when I was 26 years old. I have several years of experience in machine learning, control and optimisation theories with strong links to electric, hybrid vehicles and IoT especially in the context of smart grid, intelligent transportation and smart cities. Prior to DCU, I was employed at IBM Ireland Lab working as a data scientist, applied researcher and project lead, where I had been involved in several EU H2020 projects, including Chariot, VI-DAS, ICONET, COPKIT and 5G-Solutions. I was the work package lead for VI-DAS and 5G-Solutions at IBM. Before IBM, I worked at University College Dublin as a (senior) postdoctoral researcher with a focus on both EU and Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) funded projects, including Green Transportation and Networks (SFI) and Enable-S3 (H2020). I am an IEEE member and I have published over 40 papers to date, including 14 top-tier journals in my research fields, such as “IEEE Transactions on Smart Grids”, “IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems”, “IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering”, “IEEE System Journal”, “IEEE Transactions on Transportation Electrification” and “Automatica”. Since 2018, I have secured more than 900k euro funding support from various sources for research. In addition, I have also actively been involved in many academic activities, including technical committees, organisation and management committees for both national and international events in my research areas. I am currently the management committee member in Ireland for the EU COST Actions CA19126 and CA20138.
