Dr. Daniel Rough heading to Ireland

Congratulations to Dr Daniel Rough who has been awarded a 24-month Marie Skłodowska-Curie postdoctoral Fellowship in Ireland as part of the EDGE Programme. The prestigious MSCA EDGE Fellowships are based within 10 academic institutions across Ireland and affiliated with one of three Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Research Centres. The EDGE Programme also incorporates training and development in research, with a strong focus on industry engagement and impact, including a secondment with a relevant industry partner.

Daniel will work under the supervision of Dr Benjamin Cowan at University College Dublin within the HCI@UCD group, with whom he collaborated to develop the accepted proposal. The project will apply his PhD research in visual programming and end-user development to the strong Speech HCI and human-computer dialog expertise of Dr Cowan’s research group. He will also be affiliated with the ADAPT Research Centre, which partners novel research projects with industry experts to deliver real-world impact.
