Dr Alan Ryder was awarded a Forbairt post-doctoral fellowship in 1998 and began to develop time-resolved fluorescence methods for petroleum analysis. During this time, he began building up the nucleus of the Nanoscale Biophotonics Laboratory (NBL). In 2003, the NBL was formally established with a grant from Science Foundation Ireland. The group is focused on the use of optical spectroscopy for life and physical science applications, with a strong focus on pharmaceutical applications. Dr Ryder has two core research areas: Process Analytical Technologies (PAT) and Advanced Fluorescence spectroscopy for biomedical and environmental applications.

Dr Ryder is the author of >80 publications. A detailed list of publications is available here.
