Eoin graduated from UCD in 2003 with a BE degree in Chemical Engineering. He then went on to complete a PhD which studied the fundamentals of the membrane aerated biofilm reactor for the treatment of secondary wastewater. A subsiquent research project in this topic resulted in a successful Patent.
Eoin spent 3 years working in industry with Veolia Enivronnment, 1 year in the United States of America working as a Process Engineer designing wastewater treatment plants for industrial clients and 2 years with Veolia Environnment Research and Innovation in Paris, France. In 2011 Eoin returned to the Biofilm group in UCD to continue work on the MABR, this time focusing on the scale up issues and investigating the full scale deployment of the technology.
In 2013 Eoin set up a Universtiy Spin Out Company Oxymem which is the first company to offer the MABR as a low energy aerobic treatment system for Municipal and Industrial Wastewater. In 2014 Eoin became a lecturer in the school of Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering. His current research interests include how to make best use of the Natural Gas network in an integrated Energy System.
