Dr. Jane Courtney

Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin)

Biography: Jane graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering (BE) from UCD in 1998. After a year working as a project engineer with ESBI, she returned to UCD to pursue research in biomedical engineering and graduated with a masters (MEngSc) in 2001 and a doctorate (PhD) in 2005. Her research focused on using digital image processing to develop a novel gait analysis system.

She is a reviewer for several conferences and journals and was Chair of the International Machine Vision and Image Processing (IMVIP) conference 2019. Past collaborations include development of a nanodrop spectrophotometer with Advanced Nano Technologies, an Advance Computer Vision course with Valeo Vision Systems, a Platelet Counting System with the School of Biological Sciences and various projects with ESB and ESBI in Power Engineering. She is also Team Leader on Electricity Systems Training projects in Africa with power consultancy company, Azorom. She has been with TU Dublin (formerly DIT) since 2004.


Research Interests: Computer vision, image processing, deep learning, smart grids, reliability

My research focuses on two main areas: Computer Vision and Power Systems. In Computer Vision, areas of interest include Image Processing and Analysis, Video and Motion, Deep Learning and Biomedical Applications. Within power systems, I am interested in Smart Grids (IoT–aided Grids, Self–healing Grids, Self–modelling Grids) and Reliability.
