Research Interests

Michael Gleeson is a lecturer in the Department of Computing in SETU Carlow, lecturing a range of computer science modules across undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

Academically, he holds a BSc (Hons) in Computing from Athlone IT and an MSc in Computing from DIT. Michael also holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Third Level Teaching and Learning from DIT. Professionally, his background is primarily in systems administration and various backend technical consultancy roles. Professional certifications he has previously achieved include Cisco, VMWare, Red Hat, Microsoft MTA and Sun Microsystem (Pre-Oracle!).

Reflecting his interest in the DIY ‘Maker Movement’, Michael has an active research interest in ubiquitous computing, sensor networks and IoT technologies. He has previously published in the area of computer security, virtualization and web services and has presented his findings at conferences nationally and internationally.

Michael is undertaking a PhD in UCD School of Computer Science in the area of Data Science where he is examining the issue of data quality and provenance of data in a ubiquitous sensing environment.

Michael’s current teaching includes Operating Systems, Infrastructure for Big Data, Computer Hardware and Incident Handling and Risk Analysis. He is also Joint Programme Director for CW046, a Higher Certificated in Computing run on the Wexford Campus of SETU.
