Kieran Delaney

Research Coordinator, Department of Electronics Engineering
Cork Institute of Technology, Ireland

Kieran Delaney is the Manager of the Technologies for Embedded Computing (TEC) Centre at the Cork Institute of Technology. Formed in 2006, the Centre drives industry-led research and technology-transfer programmes for new and established companies in the domain of next generation embedded software and hardware computing technologies.

He received B.E. (Elec.) and PhD. degrees from University College Cork, Ireland in 1992 and 1997, respectively. In his doctoral work, he developed characterisation techniques and predictive models for Integral Capacitors and Resistors in ceramic substrates. He joined the NMRC in 1996 as a Research Scientist, where his responsibilities included evaluating novel interconnection technologies. During an eight-year career at NMRC, Dr. Delaney founded the Ambient Electronics Systems (AES) Team, and acquired 3.5 million euro in funding; this includes eight European projects and four large nationally funded projects. He used this funding to build the team to 20 researchers and postgraduates. The team’s core activity is developing distributed wireless sensor network toolkits as hardware platforms for research on ambient intelligence (AmI).

In March 2005, he joined Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) as the Research Coordinator for the Department of Electronic Engineering. His responsibilities included driving the development of strategic research within the Department, in particular, as it relates to the implementation of novel research in the areas of ambient intelligence, distributed & embedded wireless sensor networks, innovative control systems, distributed robotics, and autonomic behaviour. In June 2006, he was appointed to his current position as the Manager of the TEC Centre.

He has managed numerous National and European project collaborations; these projects ranged from evaluating novel high density interconnect materials, through the development of miniaturised wireless systems, to demonstration of novel distributed sensor systems. He has over forty publications in peer-reviewed journals and conferences, and a similar number of presentations at workshops and symposia. He is participating on a number of Programme Committees, including the International Conference on Pervasive Computing (PERVASIVE’06), the Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC’06, VTC’07), the Smart Objects and Ambient Intelligence conference (SoC-EUSAI’05), the Information Technology & Telecommunications Conference (IT&T’05), the ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers (CF’05), and the IEEE Conference on Pervasive Computing (Percom’04).
