Dermot Diamond received his Ph.D. and D.Sc. from Queen’s University Belfast (Chemical Sensors, 1987, Internet Scale Sensing, 2002), and was Vice president for Research at Dublin City University (DCU), Ireland (2002-2004).
He has published over 180 peer reviewed papers in international science journals, is a named inventor in 13 patents, and is co-author and editor of three books, ‘Spreadsheet Applications in Chemistry using Microsoft Excel’ (1997) and ‘Principles of Chemical and Biological Sensors’, (1998) both published by Wiley, and ‘Smart NanoTextiles’, Materials Research Society Symposium Proceedings, Volume 20, 2006.
Professor Diamond is currently director of the National Centre for Sensor Research at DCU (www.ncsr.ie) and a Principal Investigator with the Adaptive Information Cluster (AIC), a major research initiative in the area of wireless sensor networks founded by Science Foundation Ireland (see www.adaptiveinformation.ie). He was formerly the vice-president for research at DCU (2002-2005). He is a member of the editorial advisory board of the international journal ‘Talanta’. In 2002 he was awarded the inaugural silver medal for Sensor Research by the Royal Society of Chemistry, London, and in 2008 he was received the DCU President’s Research award.
