Dr. Conor O’Mahony is a Senior Research Scientist with the Tyndall National Institute at University College Cork, and has been involved in microsystems design and fabrication since 1998. He received the M. Eng. Sc. degree (2001) at the National Microelectronics Research Centre (NMRC), Cork, Ireland, for work on micromachined test structures for the measurement of mechanical properties of thin films, where he also completed a Ph.D. degree based on the development of capacitive microswitches for RF applications in July 2004.

He is currently leading a team focussed on the development of Micro Transdermal Interface Platforms (MicroTIPs) – high-value, wearable systems that combine transdermal delivery, diagnostics, self-awareness and communications capabilities. These ‘smart patches’ interact with the outermost skin layers in a minimally invasive manner, and will blur the lines between implantable medical devices and the current generation of wearable electronics. He has secured and managed research funding worth over €3M, and major projects currently underway by the team include the EU H2020 funded project ‘InForMed, which will create intelligent medical dressings for automated wound monitoring; the Enterprise Ireland-funded ‘SmartPatch’ activity that is developing intelligent drug delivery systems; and the EU PENTA programme ‘ULIMPIA’ centred around wearable ultrasonic technologies. These projects form part of Tyndall’s ICT for Health strategy, following a technology roadmap towards the development of multifunctional ‘smart patches’ for theranostic applications.

Since 2008 he has also been responsible for the management of Tyndall’s microneedle research programme, which fabricates silicon and polymer microneedle-based devices for a wide range of biomedical applications including drug and vaccine delivery, diagnostics, electroporation and physiological signal monitoring.

Prior to this (2004-2007) he was a Staff Researcher at the Tyndall National Institute, with interests in microfabrication technologies spanning the fields of radio-frequency MEMS switches and varactors, environmental sensors, wafer-level packaging and modelling of MEMS.

He is a member of the Executive Board of Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering, reviews for twelve international technology journals, and has acted as external examiner at eight international universities. He has published over one hundred and eighty research papers in journals and at conferences, and has given invited talks in Ireland, Europe, the US, Japan and China. In total he has filed nine patent applications and Invention Disclosure Notifications in the field of MEMS and micromachining, which are the subject of licence agreements with four separate companies. In May 2012 he was Chair of the 2nd International Conference on Microneedles, held in Cork, Ireland. He also chaired the 27th Micromechanics and Microsystems Europe Workshop (MME 2016) and is a member of the Program Committee for the Transducers conference. He was a member of the team which received the University College Cork Research Team of the Year Award 2012, and has been a member of the IEEE since 2000.

Research Interests

Dr. O’Mahony’s research interests are centered around the development of advanced microfabrication and microengineering technologies that can be used to create a range of sensors and transducers for use in medical, environmental and telecommunications applications. Particular areas of expertise include -

  • sensors, structures and systems for multifunctional 'smart patches' and the 'wearable clinic';
  • ICT-based transdermal interface platforms;
  • microneedle-based devices for transdermal delivery, sensing and diagnostics; 
  • wafer-level packaging for microelectromechanical systems; 
  • microsensors for environmental monitoring; 
  • capacitive microswitches and varactors for telecommunications; 
  • finite-element modelling of MEMS structures.
