David O'Connor

Operations Manager, Teaching & Technical Support


Working with the Head of Department and the Head of Administration, I am responsible for a team of departmentally funded technicians. My team provides technical support in practical class teaching combined with Health and Safety roles and other technical help within the Department including the instrument rooms. I have a supervisory role in other departmental services such as Histology, Media Services, Mechanical Workshop, and technical support for the Electron Microscope.

I am the Deputy Departmental Safety Officer for the Sherrington Building.

I sit on the following committees: Departmental Safety Advisory, Teaching, and Parking.

I joined the Department of Physiology in 1979 as a research and teaching technician. I became Chief Technician in 2002 and in 2007 I became Chief Technician in DPAG. In 2010 I was appointed to my current role as Operations Manager.
