Professor Cormac J. Sreenan


B.Sc., M.Sc., Ph.D.(Cantab), FBCS, FIAE

I joined UCC as a full professor in computer science in 1999. I served as Head of School for 3 years from 2019-2021, having previously been Head of Department for 8 years during 2015-2018 and 2000-2004. Prior to moving to Cork in 1999, I was a member of research staff at AT&T Labs in Florham Park (NJ, USA) and at Bell Labs in Murray Hill (NJ, USA). At Cork I lead the Mobile & Internet Systems Lab (MISL), a research group focused on mobile and multimedia networking and funded by a range of Irish and international agencies and companies. I am a Science Foundation Ireland Principal Investigator and have published over 200 peer-reviewed papers, serving on several ACM/IEEE journal editorial boards. I hold a Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory and am a member of Christ's College Cambridge.  

With members of my research group and colleagues I am active in technology transfer activities, mainly through collaboration with Irish companies and licencing of research outputs. I have experience in performing technical due diligence and am available to advise on patent infringement and as an expert witness in the areas of telecoms, mobile and wireless networks, and the Internet of Things (IoT). I have 8 patents granted.
