Dr. Barry Sheehan

Biography

Dr. Barry Sheehan is a lecturer in risk and finance in the Kemmy Business School at the University of Limerick. He holds the course directorship role for a cluster of award-winning inter-disciplinary programmes, including the MSc in Machine Learning for Finance, the MSc. in Computational Finance, and the HCI awarded Grad. Dip. in Artificial Intelligence in Finance. He is a senior member of Emerging Risk Group (ERG) at the University of Limerick which has long-established expertise in insurance and risk management and has a continued success within large research consortia including a number of SFI, FP7, and EU H2020 research projects. In particular, he contributed to the successful completion of three Horizon 2020 EU funded projects including PROTECT, Vision Inspired Driver Assistance Systems (VI-DAS) and Cloud Large Scale Video Analysis (Cloud-LSVA). These consortia are predominately driven by technical objectives and our role is one of assessing the legal, ethical, and actuarial impact of the state-of-the-art innovations.

Research Interests

Dr. Barry Sheehan investigates novel risk metrication and machine learning methodologies in the context of insurance and finance, attentive to a changing private and public emerging risk environment. He is a researcher with significant insurance industry and academic experience. With a professional background in actuarial science, his research uses machine-learning techniques to estimate the changing risk profile produced by emerging technologies.
