Personal profile


Dr Patrick SM Dunlop is a Lecturer within the School of Engineering and a member of the Engineering Research Institute at Ulster University. He is a Chartered Biologist with a strong academic background in applied science.  His research interests focus on 1) the design and application of nanomaterials for the disinfection of water/wastewater and the production of self-cleaning and self-disinfecting medical devices/surfaces; 2) development of biological sensing technology, including rapid identification of organisms associated with antimicrobial resistance. Patrick has ongoing collaborative research with a range of leading Universities and Research Institutes through funding from EU FP & Horizon 2020 programmes, the US-Ireland R&D Partnership (DELNI/SFI/NSF), US EPA, Royal Society, British Council, NATO and Invest NI.Patrick attained a BSc in Applied Biochemical Sciences (1st Class Hons) in 1997 and a PhD in 2001 both from Ulster University. He a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, a member of the Judging Panel for the NESTA £10M Longitude Prize, Chairman of the Northern Ireland Antimicrobial Resistance Network, a chartered member of the Society of Biology serving a number of roles on the Northern Ireland Committee over the past 10 years and an active member of both the UK Semiconductor Photochemistry Network (established with EPSRC funding) and the European Federation of Photocatalysis.
