Barry Hayes

Biography

Dr. Barry Hayes is a Lecturer and Principal Investigator in Power Systems Engineering at UCC. Prior to joining UCC in 2018, he was a lecturer at National University of Ireland Galway (2016-2018), and a Marie Sklodowska-Curie research fellow at IMDEA Energy in Madrid (2013-2016). He holds a PhD in Electrical Power Systems Engineering from the University of Edinburgh (2013), and has held visiting researcher positions at National Grid UK (2011) and at the University of Tennessee (2016).

Barry leads a research team at UCC consisting of two postdocs, three PhDs, and several Masters students. His research group focuses on the electricity grid integration of sustainable energy technologies, and the operation and planning of future power systems. 

Barry is a Funded Investigator in the SFI MaREI Centre and has a number of active research collaborations with industry and international academic partners. He has given invited presentations in Europe, USA, China, and Japan, and contributes to public science and technology communication through Ireland’s national broadcaster, RTÉ.

Barry is a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and has co-authored more than 50 peer-reviewed, international publications in books, conferences, and journals including IEEE Transactions on Power Systems and IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid.
