Dr. Ciarán Finucane
Ciarán Finucane is a Biomedical Engineering Research Fellow working at TILDA and a Medical Physicist in St James's Hospital. His research interests include mathematical modeling and biomedical signal processing with an emphasis on understanding autonomic function and cerebrovascular control. Other interests include medical device and home-healthcare technology design.
Ciarán recently completed a PhD in Clinical Medicine and Neural Engineering at Trinity College Dublin. His thesis focused on the development of a computational model of the cardiovascular system and allows clinicians to better understand the etiology of Carotid Sinus Syndrome, its diagnosis and therapy.
Prior to joining TILDA, Ciarán worked as a Research and Development Medical Physicist at St James's Hospital on healthcare technology projects. Ciarán graduated from University College Dublin with a Bachelors degree and an M.Sc. in Electronic Engineering.
