BiographiesThis MSc programme is delivered by academic researchers and industryprofessionals of considerable expertise and experience.Professor Lorraine Hanlon, BSc MSc PhD MInPLorraine Hanlon is Associate Professor of Astronomy inUCD and worked at the European Space and TechnologyResearch Centre (ESTEC) in the Netherlands as a researchfellow for 4 years. She is an active researcher in spacebased high-energy astrophysics with particular expertise inthe area of gamma-ray bursts. She was involved in thedevelopment of the Optical Monitoring Camera for the ESAINTEGRAL mission and has led the installation of a ground-based robotic telescopein South Africa for gamma-ray burst follow-up observations. With her colleagues inUCD, and in partnership with Irish industry, she is working on the development ofnext-generation gamma-ray detector technology. She is currently scientific advisor tothe Irish national delegate for the Science Programme Committee of ESA and is amember of the INTEGRAL Users' Group.Deirdre Coffey, BSc HDipEd MSc PhD MInPDeirdre Coffey is a lecturer in the Astrophysics and SpaceScience Group at UCD. She graduated with a BSc inExperimental Physics, MSc in Optoelectronics, and a PhD inAstrophysics, as well as Higher Diploma in Education. Shehas held a research fellowship at Arcetri Observatory inFlorence, Italy, as part of a Marie Curie Research andTraining Network under FP6; an Irish Research Council research fellowship at theDublin Institute for Advanced Studies; and an Italian Space Agency researchfellowship at Arcetri Observatory. She was also awarded a Marie Curie EuropeanReintegration Grant as part of FP7. Following a year of exposure to research policyand administration at the Irish Research Council, she joined the staff at UCD. Herresearch interests are in the field of star formation, using high-resolution observationsto understand how new stars are born.

Nutrition of ruminants Developing production systems for ruminants using tropical feed resources requires an understanding of the relative roles and nutrient needs of the two-compartment system represented by the symbiotic relationship between rumen micro-organisms and the host animal. Fibre-rich, low-protein forages and crop residues are the most abundant and appropriate feeds for ruminants .
