New School Lecturer in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

8 Sep 2022

The School would like to welcome newly appointed lecturer in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Herman Alexander Jaegar (MIEEE). Alex obtained the B.E, M.Eng.Sc and Ph.D degrees from University College Cork in 2014, 2015 and 2018 respectively. In 2015 he worked in Imperial College London at the Hamlyn Institute for Robotic Surgery developing novel camera tracking algorithms for minimally invasive surgery. From 2016 to 2017, Alex was a visiting researcher in the Institute for Image Guided Surgery (IHU) in Strasbourg where he developed the world's first open-source magnetic tracking system for guided surgical interventions. 

Following completion of his PhD in 2018 he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Tyndall National Institute from 2019 to 2022 where he worked on novel magnetic sensors for surgical navigation. In 2022 Alex joined the School of Engineering in UCC as a lecturer in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department where he teaches courses in introductory Power Electronics and Non-linear circuit analysis. Alex's research interests include magnetic navigation, virtual reality, motion tracking algorithm design and 3D printing.
