Eoin attained his PhD at Trinity College Dublin in 2014, with a primary research focus on the dynamics and kinematics of eruptions and shocks in the solar atmosphere. In the same year he was awarded a prestigious Irish Research Council ELEVATE fellowship, co-funded by Marie-Curie Actions, allowing him to take up a postdoctoral position at the Laboratoire d’Études Spatiales et d’Instrumentation en Astrophysique (LESIA) at the Paris Observatory from 2014-2016. While at LESIA he worked on the radio signatures of particle acceleration in the solar atmosphere using the Nançay Radioheliograph, located in central France. Eoin is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at DIAS, working on the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR), a flagship radio astronomy facility recently constructed at Birr Castle, Co. Offaly, and part of a network of similar instrument spread across Europe. He currently uses LOFAR and a variety of other low frequency radio instruments to observe the behaviour plasmas and particles during eruptive activity in the solar atmosphere. He is also involved in the application of machine learning algorithms to perform automated feature detection on data from the Irish LOFAR station.
