Daragh first worked with the APRG in 2012 for his Senior Sophister Research project titled "The Effect of Mg Doping on the Electrical Properties of Cr2O3".
In 2013 he was awarded an Irish Research Council Government of Ireland Scholarship to work on the "Fabrication and characterisation of novel p-type conducting oxides". He submitted his PhD thesis entitled "Utilising Chromium-Based p-Type Transparent Conducting Oxides in Photovoltaic Devices" in January 2018 and is currently working as a postdoctoral researcher in the group, continuing his work on p-type transparent conducting oxides while also beginning to work on antiferromagnetic spintronics.
