I am a Research Fellow At Insight NUI Galway (formerly DERI). I joined the institute in October 2011. My focus is on Distributed Infrastructure architectures, and have delivered a number of large projects both commercial and research. My work focuses on distributed computing architectures. Prior to working with Insight, I worked as a developer & coach with advanced agile teams, sat on O2's technical steering group as a system architect, and was CTO of a small internet startup. I have over 18 years work experience in solutions architect, developer and management roles delivering big data and large scale solutions.
