Personal profile


Dr McCullagh received a BSc (1979) and a PhD (1983) in Electrical Engineering from Queen’s University of Belfast. He is a Reader in the School of Computing & Mathematics at the University of Ulster and is a Member of the Computer Science Research Institute. He specializes in the teaching of data communications, computer networking and health informatics. His research interests include Biomedical Signal and Image Processing, Data Mining, Brain Computer Interfaces, and Assisted Living applications. He is interested in the ethical deployment of technology in smart environments. Grants include EU FP7 BRAIN project for e-inclusion using the brain-computer interface, EU FP7 Michelangelo for assessing autistic children in a smart environment, EPSRC SMART 2 for self-management of chronic disease, TSB NOCTURNAL for assisting people with dementia, and ESRC New Dynamics of Ageing, Design for Ageing Well funded projects. He is currently a CI in the following Marie Curie networks: ACROSSING, a multidisciplinary, cross-sector, pan-European training network aimed at Smart Homes Early Stage Researchers, and REMIND, a RISE network that promotes computational techniques to improve compliance to reminders within smart environments. He is a member of the British Computer Society.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
