Trinity Monday 2014 - Fellows and Scholars
The annual Trinity Week began on Monday, 7th April in Front Square with the announcement of new Fellows and Scholars by the Provost, Dr Patrick Prendergast.
Congratulations to Dr Anthony Robinson of the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering who was elected to Fellowship. Congratulations also to the four Senior Freshman Engineering students elected to Scholarship: Áine Esther Cahill, Brian Fallon, Jonathan Lynn and Kris Vanhoutte.
Anthony Robinson (Dr)
Dr Tony Robinson is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at Trinity College Dublin. Tony joined the academic staff of Trinity College in 2004 where he now leads a team of researchers in the Fluids and Heat Transfer Research Laboratory investigating topics of basic and applied thermal sciences.
He graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelors of Engineering degree from McMaster University, Canada and subsequently received several prestigious provincial and national scholarships during his Masters and Doctoral studies in McMaster University.
Dr Robinson received his doctoral degree on the topic of computational modelling of liquid-vapour phase growth in microgravity. He followed this with a postdoctoral post at McMaster where he researched two phase systems, in particular electrohydrodynamics, with the use of electric fields to influence the dynamic behaviour of two phase systems. His current research covers a broad range of topics spanning the fundamental physics of nucleate and convective boiling to off-grid electricity generation in developing countries.
