Siobhan is a Professor in the School of Computer Science and Statistics, Trinity College Dublin.
Current research focus is on software engineering models for the provision of smart and dynamic software services to urban stakeholders, addressing research challenges in the engineering of dynamic software in large-scale, ad hoc, mobile environments.
Since assuming the lead of DSG in 2006, the team has grown to over 60 researchers, expanding to include 12 academics. The success of DSG and its smart cities research lead Trinity College to recognise “Smart and Sustainable Cities” as a key strategic area of research, and Prof Clarke has since launched a College-wide Research Centre, Future Cities, focussing on multi-disciplinary research on smart and sustainable cities. The Future Cities Centre includes researchers from computer science, statistics, information systems, engineering, natural sciences, social sciences, chemistry, arts, nursing and midwifery, business and law, and has already engaged industry partners in research strategy forums.
Prof Clarke is an active participant in the international research community.Community involvement spans membership of editorial boards (examples, IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, and on Services Computing), conference/workshop organising committees and technical program committees.
