Colm O'Dwyer was born in Limerick, Ireland in 1977. He received his B.S. degree in applied physics and Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Limerick, Limerick, Ireland in 1999 and 2003, respectively. He conducted postdoctoral research in nanotechnology and nanolithography using magneto-optical trap and ultracold atoms beams at the University of Toulouse III Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France, followed by research on inorganic nanostructures for nanoelectronics and nanophotonics at Tyndall National Institute, Cork, Ireland. From 2008 to 2012, he was a Science Foundation Ireland Stokes Lecturer in nanomaterials at the University of Limerick. He is currently a Principal Investigator at Tyndall National Institute leading the Applied Nanoscience Group. His main research interests include the growth and device-influenced application of metal oxides for electronics, photonics and charge storage, semiconductor electrochemistry, light-matter interactions, subwavelength optics, Li-ion and Li-air batteries, semiconducting and complex metallic nanomaterial synthesis, porous semiconductors, hybrid materials, III-N materials growth, wide-band gap materials, and nanoscale thermoelectrics.
