As an engineer and researcher I have worked in the energy and climate action sectors for over 20 years. During this time I have had the benefit of working on over 40 EU projects across multiple funding programmes, both as a coordinator and partner. I have had the benefit of engaging and working with experts across Europe, tackling real-world problems and seeking to develop new and innovative solutions. Through networking and collaborating with other experts I have gained invaluable knowledge which can be applied in an Irish context. By participating in the THEA mentoring programme I hope I can transfer some of my experiences to others, support the growth of other researchers while also learning about my mentee’s field of expertise and hopefully identifying synergies
EU funding through Horizon and LIFE programmes enables me to work with leading experts across Europe to tackle real world problems. By participating in the THEA mentoring programme I hope I can transfer some of my experiences to other researchers to support their growth.
