Prof O Mathuna has more than 30 years’ experience in applied research, and technology transfer to Irish and international industry. His research and publications have focused on the convergence of microelectronics and microsystems whereby CMOS provides an intelligent platform for the miniaturisation and functional integration of non-standard functions such as sensors, actuators, power and cooling. Cian is Head of Strategic Programmes at Tyndall which is focused on developing a fundamental understanding of how to interface microelectronics with:

  • the built and the natural environment to improve the sustainability of our natural

    resources and the quality of our environment through monitoring and control and

  • the human body to enhance our health and well-being through diagnostics and

    therapeutics.

     

    Cian has been a co-founding member of national industry-academic research clusters in the areas of surface mount technology (Smart Group Ireland), wireless sensor networks (WiSEN) and power electronics (PEIG). In 2010, he was an Irish Government appointee on the National Innovation Task Force Implementation Group. He is a Research Professor in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University College Cork. In 2008, he founded the International Workshop on Power Supply on Chip (PwrSoC) which is now the IEEE flagship conference in this space. In January 2013, he was named an IEEE Fellow in the field of power electronics

     

    In October 2014, he became Deputy Director of the recently funded SFI CONNECT Centre for future networks and communications with responsibility 

    for the Responsive Things research strand.

Research Interests

Prof. Ó Mathúna’s personal research is focused on delivering value that will enable industry, particularly Irish industry, to enhance the innovation and competitiveness of its future products and business. In particular, he is interested in making smart things for the future internet of everything. These smart things should take up no space, cost nothing, last forever and operate on zero power. His research activities include:

  • The convergence of microelectronics and microsystems whereby CMOS provides an intelligent platform for the miniaturisation and monolithic or heterogeneous integration of non-standard functions such as sensors, actuators, power management and cooling.

  • System integration and miniaturisation of wireless sensor modules for remote environmental monitoring, energy management in buildings, personal health based on wearable and in-the-body intelligent sensor systems for both diagnostics and therapeutics.

  • Miniaturised power management systems for energy harvesting/scavenging and power supply on chip (PwrSoC) based on thin film magnetics on silicon.
