During an eight-year career at NMRC, Dr. Delaney founded the Ambient Electronics Systems (AES) Team, and acquired 3.5 million euro in funding; this includes eight European projects and four large nationally funded projects. He used this funding to build the team to 20 researchers and postgraduates. The team’s core activity is developing distributed wireless sensor network toolkits as a solution to providing hardware platforms for ambient intelligence (AmI).

He has managed many National and European project collaborations; these projects ranged from evaluating novel high density interconnect materials, through the development of miniaturised wireless systems, to demonstration of novel distributed sensor systems. To date, he has participated on a number of Programme Committees, including the ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers (CF’05), and the IEEE Conference on Pervasive Computing (Percom 2004). He has recently taken up an appointment as Research Co-ordinator for the Department of Electronic Engineering in Cork Institute of Technology (CIT). His responsibilities include co-ordinating the development of strategic research within the Department, in particular as it relates to the implementation of novel research directions in the areas of ambient intelligence, distributed wireless sensor networks, innovative control systems, distributed robotics, and autonomic systems research.


Kieran Delaney received B.E. (Elec.) and PhD. degrees from University College Cork, Ireland in 1992 and 1997, respectively.
