    Shane graduated from University College Dublin (UCD) with a PhD in Geotechnical Engineering (2006). Following this, he was awarded the Pierse Newman Scholarship for Civil Engineering and worked for a number of years as a research fellow in UCD. In 2008, he was awarded an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA Ireland) STRIVE research fellowship concerned with development of geophysical tools for specific environmental applications.  During this time he was also appointed President of the Geophysical Association of Ireland (GAI). He was appointed to the position of Lecturer in Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Bath in 2011 and subsequently to his current position in QUB in 2012.

    Research Interests

    Shane currently leads the Engineering and Environmental Geophysical Research group (EEGR) at QUB. His research focuses on applications of advanced geotechnical and geophysical tools and on the development of high resolution near surface geophysical technologies. He applies his research to a range of engineering and environmental issues including: The effect of climate variation on geotechnical infrastructure and natural slopes, offshore foundation solutions for marine renewables, wastewater contamination and peatland restoration.
