Research Profile

Aisling O'Driscoll

Biography

Aisling holds a PhD (Vehicular Communication Systems), a Master’s of Engineering by research (Passive Monitoring of VoIP QoS) undertaken in the Nimbus Centre at Cork Institute Technology (CIT) and a BSc in Software Development and Computer Networking as well as a number of professional industry certifications. Her research interests are in cooperative communication systems, protocols and network management with applications domains including vehicular networks and autonomous devices.

In 2011 she joined the academic staff in the Department of Computer Science in CIT where she led interdisciplinary research funded from the European Union (F7 ClouDx-i), the Irish Research Council, Science Foundation Ireland via the UCC APC amongst others. In 2016 she won a Teaching Hero Award and in 2015 was computing coordinator for an interdisciplinary MSc which won a GradIreland Postgraduate Course of the Year award.

In 2017 she joined the academic staff in the School of Computer Science in UCC, In 2018 she joined the SFI CONNECT Centre as a Funded Investigator. She is on the steering committee for the national CAV Ireland consortia (JLR led) and is a Dire
ctor at IT@Cork. She is also a CS advocate partaking in a number of related initiatives I Wish (co-founder of the CIT campus week), Dell ASPIRE and CWIT.

Research Interests

Dr O' Driscoll's current research interests are in communication protocols and network management for wireless networks with applications domains including vehicular networks and IoT. She also has expertise in parallelised algorithm design and software development for bioinformatics applications.
