Ian Davis

Dublin, Ireland
Postdoctoral Member of Technical Staff


I completed by secondary school education in 2005, and then studied Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering at Trinity College Dublin. I stayed at TCD on completion of my undergraduate course, and completed a Ph.D. entitled "Noise-Source Identification in Turbomachinery" in October 2013.
