Dr Padraig Corcoran is a Senior Lecturer and Academic Director of the Data Science Academy (DSA) in the School of Computer Science and Informatics (COMSC) at Cardiff University. The DSA is a recently launched collaborative project between a number of academic schools in Cardiff University which aims to ensure that Wales produces highly-skilled and employable graduates in the field of data science.

After completing his PhD Dr Corcoran obtained a highly competitive Irish Research Council (IRC) two year post-doctoral fellowship. This in turn contributed to him subsequently obtaining a two year European Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship (IOF). Marie Curie fellowships are the flagship fellowship for leading young researchers in Europe. Dr Corcoran completed his IOF fellowship in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Following completion of the above post-doctoral positions, Dr Corcoran joined Cardiff University as a lecturer in 2015.

Dr Corcoran has much experience and expertise in the fields of graph theory and applied topology. He is particularly interested in applications to the domains of geographical information science and robotics.
