Contact Information



Michael received the BE degree in Electrical Engineering and the MSc degree in Bioengineering from University College Dublin in 2010 and 2011, respectively. He received his PhD in Neural Engineering from Trinity College Dublin in 2016, where he developed a system identification framework for studying the neurophysiology of audiovisual speech processing in humans under the supervision of Dr Edmund Lalor. After a brief postdoctoral position in the Lalor Lab at Trinity, Michael moved to New York to work as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Cognitive Neurophysiology Laboratory at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
