Biography

Eithne Dempsey received a PhD in Electroanalytical Chemistry from DCU in 1993 followed
by postdoctoral research at St. Vincent’s hospital, Dublin. She then took up a position as
Lecturer in Chemistry at IT Tallaght where she managed the Centre for Research in
Electroanalytical Technologies, resulting in successful graduation of 18 MSc/PhD students
and realising >€6M in recurrent funding with the establishment of the Enterprise Ireland
funded Technology Gateway centre MiCRA Biodiagnostics. She has co-authored >70 peer
reviewed articles and has worked closely with a range of start up, SMEs and multinational
companies on 20+ projects in the diagnostics, chemical analysis and sensor development
areas. EU grant co-ordination has included Marie Curie individual fellowships and
international staff exchange programmes. She was appointed visiting Professor of
Chemistry at the University of the Western Cape, Capetown, South Africa in 2012 and
recently (2017) took up a position as Lecturer in Chemistry at Maynooth University. Her
research interests include chemical and biosensor development, nanomaterials, point of
care biodiagnostics, and conducting polymers.
