Today we celebrate the many achievements of Irish engineer, researcher, and educator, Linda Doyle. Doyle was recently elected provost of Trinity College Dublin – the first woman to every hold the post at the institution, which is over 400 years old. Her many admirable passions include exploring the link between the creative arts and engineering, the environment, and advocating for young women in STEM.
Doyle studied electrical engineering at University College Cork and went on to complete her master’s and PhD at Trinity, after which she remained highly active in cognitive radio and wireless networking research. She later became the director of Science Foundation Ireland research centre Connect, leading its applied research programmes in telecoms and networks.
