I have extensive experience in national and international research initiatives. I have participated in research projects within the EU Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Framework Programmes’ Esprit, Marie Curie, IST, IHP, ICT, NMP, Environment and Security actions. Within FP7, I coordinated the FP7 NMP project FUNMOL, and currently co-ordinates the Environment project ECO-India and the Security project ROSFEN. Nationally, I have participated in the Irish Government Higher Education Authority PRTLI Cycles 1, 3, 4 & 5 Initiatives and currently leads the PRLTI-5 TYFFANI programme. I am an investigator in Science Foundation Ireland’s Research Frontiers Programme, a co-investigator in the FORME Strategic Research Cluster and is a funded investigator in the CONNECT SFI Centre.I co-wrote the successful proposal for the Tyndall-led Technology Centre, the Collaborative Centre in Applied Nanotechnology (CCAN).

I have acted as a consultant on future research directions in Nanotechnology in Ireland, both as a member of the ICSTI Nanotechnology Task Force and a panel member of the Forfás NanoIreland Technology Assessment Exercise.
A member of the Institute of Physics, the American Physical Society, the American Vacuum Society and the Materials Research Society.

He has acted as a reviewer for several peer-reviewed journals, including Advanced Materials, IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology and Small.
