Prof. Paul Hurley received a B.Eng. (1985, 1st class honors) in Electronic Engineering at the University of Liverpool, and was awarded the IEE Departmental Prize and the William Henry McMenemey Prize for 1st place in the Department and the Engineering Faculty. Paul received a PhD in solid state physics from in 1990 (Liverpool University). Paul moved to University College Cork in 1992, and a currently the Head of the Nanoelectronic Materials and Devices Group at the Tyndall National Institute and a Research Professor at University College Cork. Paul received an Intel Outstanding Researcher award for his work on electrically active defects in high-k/III-V metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) system in 2012.

Paul’s research group are exploring alternative semiconductor materials and device structures aimed at improving energy efficiency in the next generation of logic switches which will be used in applications, covering: nanoelectronics, flexible electronics, mobile communications and low power sensor technologies. Part of this research is focussed on 2D semiconductors (e.g., MoS2, WSe2) and their interfaces with metals and oxides for applications in electronic devices, and is in collaboration with INTEL and Prof. Georg Duesberg in the AMBER centre. The group in Tyndall are also exploring the use of MOS systems for the creation of solar fuels through water splitting reactions in collaboration with Queens, Belfast and Stanford University.

Open Call for EDGE Scholarship Applications

EDGE Fellowships are for experienced researchers of any nationality and residing worldwide, seeking a prestigious career development fellowship based in one of ten of Ireland’s third-level institutes. EDGE aims to form the next generation of thought leaders in ICT and develop their skill set to actively interact, collaborate and engage with industry. EDGE fellows will be researchers who are technically strong in their own discipline and capable of performing high-value, interdisciplinary research. The fellowships will provide researchers with the opportunity to work closely with their choice of academic and industry partners relevant to their research, training and professional career development objectives.
