Personal Summary

ORCID ID – https://orcid.org/0000-0003-3087-9303

Deirdre Kilbane received a BSc in Experimental Physics along with a PGD in Education from University College Dublin (UCD) and a PhD in Mathematical Physics from the National University of Ireland Maynooth. Prior to joining the TSSG, she led the Ultrafast Nanoplasmonics Group in the Aeschlimann Laboratories in the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany. Deirdre has published at the highest level in Science, Nano Letters and Physical Review X and is an Adjunct Lecturer/Assistant Professor in the School of Physics, UCD. She works as a researcher and project manager for both European and national projects and is currently funded by Science Foundation Ireland. Her research combines nanotechnology, artificial intelligence and quantum communication to develop innovative technologies for the agriculture, healthcare, and information and communication technology (ICT) sectors
