According to Dr Annalisa Montesanti, Programme Manager, at the HRB,

‘This prize represents a great achievement for Aidan and his career and it underlines the HRB’s commitment to supporting emerging and talented researchers to build their research careers. That two of the three winners came from Ireland, shows a high international research reputation for Irish researchers.

Aiden is now a senior research fellow at the University of Oxford and has established himself as a research leader in the analysis of sensor data to understand human behaviour'.
