Biographical Information

Alan graduated from University College Dublin, Ireland in 2006 with a first class honours degree in Electronic Engineering. Since then he has been part of the Multimodal Signal Processing Group in UCD and the Neural Engineering Group at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland where he is currently working towards his PhD investigating the temporal dynamics of auditory processing and selective attention using continuous and ecologically valid stimuli (expected April 2011). Since late 2010 he has also been a member of the TRIL Centre investigating speech correlates of cognitive decline in older adults. The TRIL Centre consists of an interdisciplinary research team looking at the physical, social and cognitive consequences of ageing and developing technologies to address them.

Research Interests

  • The dynamics of endogenous attention in natural scenarios
  • Auditory processing and auditory processing deficits
  • cognitive decline in ageing
  • EEG and EEG analysis methodologies
  • signal processing of biological signals.
