Niall has just completed the Product Design and Technology course in University of Limerick and looks forward to applying his skills in future projects. For the work carried out under hid final year project he won a 1st Place Nexus and Product Designer of the Year award. His interests span from developing technologies to music, movies and Munster Rugby. As a designer he hopes to make a difference in his environment through design. His final year project involved developing a social inclusion product/service that was focused on homeless people. His role in the Health Futures Lab was in bringing his design skills to the process. These skills included quantitative and qualitative research, concept generation and concept realisation. The experience proved to be both exciting and informative about the process of problem solving in cooperative environments with the multiple disciplines. He hopes that the work carried out under this remit can provide a launch pad for discussion and action in preventative health solutions.‚Äč
