Biography

John Ringwood, a native of Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford, was educated at Dublin Institute of Technology, Kevin Street and at Strathclyde University in Scotland, where he was awarded the PhD in 1985. He was a Senior Lecturer in the School of Electronic Engineering in Dublin City University until 2000, when he was appointed Professor and Head of the Department of Electronic Engineering at NUI Maynooth, serving as Head for a five year term to July 2005. He was a visiting Research Fellow at Massey University in New Zealand in 1991/92 and a visiting Senior Lecturer at the University of Auckland in 1999. His research interests focus on the development and application of modelling and control systems techniques. John is a Fellow of Engineers Ireland and a Chartered Engineer. John served as Dean of the Engineering at NUI Maynooth from 2001 to 2006. He is currently the Director of the Centre for Ocean Energy Research at Maynooth University.
