General Background: 

I completed my undergraduate degree in Physics with Astronomy and Space Science in University College Dublin in 2018, where I then also did an MRes which focused on using convolutional neural networks to identify distinctive ring-shaped signals in a high energy telescope. This project involved handling a large amount of citizen science data and determining how best to use it in order to train models to detect those signals. From this experience I decided that I wanted to pursue AI research further outside of astrophysics, which has led me here to Bristol. I enjoy the cross-disciplinary nature of many applications of AI and I have a particular interest in computer vision
