Celebration of World Day of Cultures 2023!!

The UCD School of Computer Science celebrated the World Day of Cultures by showcasing diverse student cultures. Participants from different counties presented their unique traditions, languages, and cuisines, creating a vibrant and inclusive event. The event fostered intercultural understanding and collaboration, creating an enriching environment within the School. I thoroughly enjoyed the event and look forward to celebrating this occasion every year.


Welcome to LiSDA, Andrew McCartan!

Congratulations Andrew!

We would like to extend our warmest welcome to you as our newest post-doctoral researcher. We are absolutely thrilled to have you on board, and we can’t wait to collaborate with you on exciting research projects. Along the way, we’re going to create some great memories and have a lot of fun. Once again, congratulations, and welcome to the LiSDA group!

Ramadan Mubarak 2023!!

As part of our celebration of Ramadan, we celebrated the first iftar with other PhD students, our respected teachers, and staff members, as well as our close friends and family members. Everyone shared delicious and mouthwatering food while having a lot of fun.

During this event, all PhD students had the opportunity to get to know one another and to learn about the Iftar culture of other Muslim countries. We would like to thank all of you for attending this program and for making it such a memorable and successful event.

Our warmest wishes go out to everyone around the world celebrating Ramadan during this holy month.

May this month of fasting, prayer, and reflection bring you closer to your faith and grant you peace, happiness, and blessings in all areas of your life.

Ramadan Mubarak!


PhD/MSc by Research Poster Event at UCD

It was a wonderful experience presenting a poster at the PhD/MSc by Research Poster Event organised by the UCD School of Computer Science.  We presented and shared our recent findings to get valuable feedback from other researchers. We are grateful for the effort put forth by the organising committee to make this event possible.

Having Pizza afterwards.

“Understanding Cancer” Workshop

The “Cancer Awareness Workshop in Bangladeshi Community”  was hosted by Precision Oncology Ireland as part of UCD Science week on 19th November. It was worth attending this workshop.  They highlighted the importance of the patient voice in Cancer Research.  They are aiming for inclusive Cancer Research, including minority groups.  As a member of a minority group, it will be a milestone for our community.

Congratulations to Dr. Claudia and Mercy !!

Huge congratulations to Dr. Claudia Mazo for her well-deserved success. Best wishes for your new role as Assistant Professor at DCU.  You are an inspiration to us and we are proud of you.

“Science Day in UCD”

Celebrating Science Day  in UCD 

Today there were some student societies who demonstrated their extraordinary scientific experimental discoveries and also showed some very interesting projects. While physics societies have shown their formula for making liquid ice cream using physics equations, the School of Earth Science societies have been presented with a few rare collections of stone, glass, and fossils. Women+ in STEM Society  put music in STEM. They showed off their banana piano tests there and they also added another test called Glow-in-the-Dark Jar. There were couple of societies who also have participated this demonstration table to successfully celebrate Science day in UCD.
