Dr Kevin Moroney

Funded Investigator Modelling

University of Limerick


Kevin Moroney is a lecturer in industrial and applied mathematics at the University of Limerick. He holds an BSc in Mathematical Sciences from University College Cork and an MSc in Mathematical Modelling from University of Limerick. In 2017 he completed his PhD in Applied Mathematics from University of Limerick. He is interested in various topics in applied mathematics with industrial applications, including mathematical modelling of transport processes in porous media with applications in coffee brewing and drug dissolution. These topics require modelling of multiphysics phenomena including multiphase fluid flow, chemical transport and phase change (dissolution and precipitation). He has previously worked in SSPC as a postdoctoral researcher on the MOMEnTUM Spokes project, an industry co-funded project with the Johnson & Johnson Automation Centre of Excellence on the topic of continuous manufacturing of oral solid dosage forms. More recently he completed a one-year postdoctoral position in SSPC in 2020 on mathematical modelling of drug release from tablets in in-vitro dissolution. He is currently involved in the modelling theme on a number of projects associated with modelling drug release from pharmaceutical devices.
