Upon completing her PhD in electrochemistry at UCC under the supervision of Prof. Declan Burke she was awarded a Marie Curie Post-Doctoral in the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck society, Berlin. Later she expanded her research interests into nanochemistry in UCD under the direction of Prof. Donald Fitzmaurice.
Lorraine has been a researcher in the Tyndall National Institute since 2007. Her interests lie in nanostructured materials for energy and electrochemical sensing applications with particular emphasis on nanoporous metals of late.
Lorraine delivered an invited keynote presentation on this theme at the RSC Electrochem 2012. She has published 30 journal papers, over 40 conference presentations and 2 patents. She has secured over 1.5 million in research grant funding and was PI on research projects funded by the European Union, Enterprise Ireland, Science Foundation Ireland, CCAN and industry.
