I’m Dr Seán Carroll, a senior lecturer in structural engineering at the University of Exeter in the UK. Structural engineering and engineering education are things I’m very passionate about. I graduated with a first in structural engineering from Dublin Institute of Technology in 2006. I have a masters degree in civil engineer and a PhD in structural dynamics (crowd-induced structural vibration).
After getting my degree I worked for several years in Dublin as a structural design engineer. After completing my PhD in 2013 I took up an assistant professor post at the University of Nottingham. This was followed by a 3 year stint as an assistant professor at the University of Warwick. Following a move to Cornwall in 2016, I joined the University of Exeter as a senior lecturer in structural engineering.
I’m also a chartered engineer with Engineers Ireland (I’m Irish by the way!) and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
