Brian joined Nimbus Centre in July 2013 as programme manager for the Mallow Systems Innovation Centre. This activity brought Nimbus Centre closer to Mallow, North Cork and Blackwater Valley based industry, educational institutions and academia. The Innovation Centre was pivotal to rolling out Internet of Things and Small Smart City demonstrators, and pilots in Mallow Town and beyond, while also affording companies in this hub location an opportunity to engage with a research and innovation centre to bring their ideas to reality.
Brian is no stranger to the corridors of MTU as he was part of the Computing Department staff in 2006 following nine years working primarily in the Telecommunications Industry. Since 2006, Brian has worked with the School of Engineering, UCC on SFI and EU FP7 projects while also lecturing to both undergraduate and master level Civil and IT in AEC Engineering students with emphasis on Software Engineering, Information Modeling and Data analysis. Brian has also extensive experience with systems integration and project management.
Before Brian started his academic career he worked in commercial software development with national and multi-national companies, such as Acer and Motorola with emphasis on Telecommunications research and development. Brian’s research interests include wireless systems design, Building Information Model (BIM), Databases, Building Performance and Software Engineering. He has numerous publications.
