Cormac_GebruersCormac is the founding Manager of the HALPIN Centre. He began his career in the merchant navy and while still at sea became very involved in maritime IT and radio communications related work. After coming ashore, he set up and ran a maritime transport and logistics research and innovation company (an early spin out from the Cork Regional Technical College that later became the Cork Institute of Technology) before spending four years in computer science research focussed on machine learning in Science Foundation Ireland's first major centre, the Cork Constraint Computation Centre at University College Cork (now the Insight Centre). Before joining NMCI to set up HALPIN in 2012, he spent seven years with Transas, a maritime navigation systems multinational where he specialised in Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) and coastal monitoring and surveillance systems. In this period he worked extensively around the World including spending a year in China supporting the company's operations there. In addition to his centre management role, Cormac also heads up HALPIN's Maritime Mechatronics team. Cormac is a member of the NMCI College Senior Executive Team, of the CIT Research Ethics Committee and the CIT School of Graduate Studies Steering Committee. Cormac is one of the team who represent Ireland on the Waterborne Technology Platform and the Alliance for Logistics Innovation through Collaboration in Europe - ALICE, the Technology Platform for Logistics.
