Dr. O Donnell’s research activities are based on advancing the scientific understanding underpinning advanced manufacturing technologies in sectors such as medical devices, automotive and aerospace sectors. The core focus of the research work is the characterisation of measurable phenomena in materials processing spanning length scales and spanning domains from machining to energy consumption at factory systems level. In the last 10 years, Dr. O Donnell has developed a research group in the field of manufacturing engineering research, and supervised 20 graduate research theses to completion, graduating 9 MSc by research and 13 PhDs. The majority of the graduates from the group have taken up positions in industry in Ireland, Europe and US. The calibre of the research group is at the highest level internationally and a metric of international esteem is that Dr. O Donnell is an associate member of The International Academy of Production Engineering (CIRP).

The research and postgraduatefunding secured by Dr. O Donnell in addition to AMBER comes from sources including EU, Enterprise Ireland, EPA, and IRC as well as bilateral funding from industry. A key characteristic of Dr. O’Donnell’s group is the strong links to industry and supporting industry in addressing next generation challenges such as “Industrie 4.0”. The strong research collaboration with industry on state of the art manufacturing topics provides the context for teaching in the undergraduate programme stimulating the interest and enthusiasm of the undergraduate students.
