Siobhán Clarke is a Professor in the School of Computer Science and Statistics at Trinity College Dublin. She joined Trinity in 2000, having previously worked for over ten years at IBM. Her current research focus is on software engineering models for the provision of dynamic software services to urban stakeholders, addressing research challenges in the engineering of dynamic software in large-scale, ad hoc, mobile environments. She is particularly interested in the application of machine learning and autonomous systems techniques, using real-time data, to the provisioning of continuously reliable software services in such environments.
Prof. Clarke is a Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Principal Investigator, and the founding Director of Future Cities, the Trinity Centre for Smart and Sustainable Cities. She is a Co-PI in the CONNECT, Lero and Insight Research Centres and leads the Enable SFI Spoke on Connecting Communities to Smart Urban Environments through the Internet of Things, which is a national collaboration between CONNECT, Insight and Lero. She has published over 200 papers and serves on the Editorial Boards of IEEE Transactions on Services Computing and ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems. She recently launched, as Specialty Chief Editor, a section on “Smart Technologies and Cities” in Frontiers on Sustainable Cities. She has supervised 23 PhD students to completion.
Prof. Clarke was elected Fellow of Trinity College Dublin in 2006.
