Dr Conor Muldoon
Research Scientist
UCD

Dr. Conor Muldoon is a research scientist on the Acclimatize project in the School of Computer Science at UCD with research interests in the areas of Sensor Networks, Multi-Agent Systems, Distributed Artificial Intelligence, and the Internet of Things. Prior to the Acclimatize project, he worked on COBWEB (Citizen OBservatory Web), which was a multi-disciplinary FP7 project in areas of Crowdsourcing, Sensor Networks, and Citizen Science. As a postdoctoral researcher, he held two prestigious Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering, and Technology (IRCSET) fellowships, namely the INSPIRE Marie Curie International Mobility Fellowship and the Embark Fellowship. During the mobility fellowship, he was hosted at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford for an outgoing phase of two years and by the School of Computer Science at UCD for a return phase of one year. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science and a B.Sc. (Honours) degree in Computer and Software Engineering.


Dr Guanghai Gao
Research Scientist
UCD

Dr Guanghai Gao completed his PhD in Hydro-environmental Modelling from Cardiff University. Guanghai’s PhD project involved the development and application of a hydro-environmental model to predict hydrodynamic, sediment transport and bacterial processes in riverine, coastal and estuarine waters. He then worked as a Research Associate at Cardiff University on two different projects. One of the projects, Multidisciplinary Research in Tidal Stream Energy, involved developing hydro-environmental models to investigate environmental impacts of tidal energy projects in the Severn Estuary, UK. The other project, C2C CLOUD TO COAST: Integrated assessment of environmental exposure, health impacts and risk perceptions of faecal organisms in coastal waters, involved developing hydro-environmental models to simulate fate and transport of Faecal Indicator Bacteria in the Ribble Estuary, UK. Before joining the Acclimatize Project as a Research Scientist, Guanghai was a Lecturer in the department of Environmental Science and Engineering at Nankai University, China
