Research Interests

Dr Ó Sé obtained a Ph.D, at NUI Maynooth, in Theoretical Physics in 1986.  He was a research scholar in the Dublin Institute of Advanced Studies for a year before he began teaching at SETU Carlow. He also holds a Masters in Management Science (1992) from the Michael Smurfit Graduate School of Business.  Diarmuid obtained a Postgraduate Diploma in Third Level Teaching & Learning (DIT 2011).

His research interests are Mathematics Education and in particular Maths Learning Support in HE.
