  • Macroeconomic risk and international financial markets 

    Corcoran, Aidan (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Economics, 2010)
    This thesis is composed of three essays addressing the use of financial markets to hedge or gain exposure to macroeconomic risk. The first essay examines the question of consumption risk sharing between countries. Theory ...
  • Macroevolution with living and fossil species 

    Guillerme, Thomas (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Zoology, 2015)
    Although many biodiversity studies focus on living species, the vast majority of species that ever lived are long extinct. It is therefore crucial to combine data from both living and fossil species to fully understand ...
  • Macrophage immunometabolism in the host response to Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection 

    GLEESON, LAURA ELIZABETH (Trinity College Dublin. School of Medicine. Discipline of Clinical Medicine, 2017)
    Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading infectious disease killer in the world, alongside HIV. Our understanding of the complex host immune response to Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) remains incomplete, but varied clinical ...
  • Maculate conceptions : Irish film and drama of the 1930s 

    Pine, Emilie (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of English, 2005)
    In the 1930s Ireland grasped the opportunity to define itself as a modern free state and the decade is thus one of the most dynamic in Ireland’s history since Independence. Within the space of ten years, Fianna Fail came ...
  • Magmatic differentiation and bimodality in oceanic island settings - implications for the petrogenesis of magma in Tenerife, Spain 

    Wiesmaier, Sebastian (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Geology, 2010)
    The Tenerife post-Icod-collapse succession, comprised of the Teide-Pico Viejo central complex and its adjacent rift zones, marks the latest eruptive cycle on Tenerife (200-0 ka) that broadly evolved from primitive lavas ...
  • Magnetic and transport properties of magnetite based nanostructures 

    Wu, Han-Chun (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2009)
    In this thesis, we investigate the magnetic and transport properties of magnetite based nanostructures. We in particular investigate the magnetization and surface Verwey transition of magnetite thin film, interlayer ...
  • Magnetic barcodes in molecular medicine 

    Byrne, Fiona N. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2010)
    The need for faster and more sensitive diagnostic systems for the early detection of many life-threatening diseases is the driving force behind the work in this thesis. A lab-on-a-chip prototype device incorporating a ...
  • Magnetic Characteristics of Sunspot Groups and their Role in Producing Adverse Space Weather 

    MCCLOSKEY, AOIFE ELIZABETH (Trinity College Dublin. School of Physics. Discipline of Physics, 2019)
    The energy that powers solar flares is known to come from magnetic energy stored in sunspot groups, but the precise conditions required and processes involved in energy release remain unclear. The likelihood of ...
  • Magnetic field effects on electrodeposition and the properties of electrodeposited nickel and nickel-copper 

    O'Reilly, Cora (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2004)
    The association of magnetism and electrodeposition is studied from two separate perspectives. Firstly the effect of an applied magnetic field on the deposition process and secondly the production of magnetic materials by ...
  • Magnetic field effects on the electrodeposition and electrodissolution of copper 

    Hinds, Gareth (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2001)
    The effect of a static magnetic field on the electrodeposition and electrodissolution of copper in acidified copper sulphate solution was investigated. The primary effect of the field was to increase the rate of mass ...
  • Magnetic nanoparticle-supported catalysts and novel organocatalysts for enantioselective synthesis 

    Gleeson, Oliver (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Chemistry, 2013)
    A study concerning the immobihsation onto magnetic nanoparticles of two useful classes of chiral organocatalyst which rely on a confluence of weak, easily perturbed van der Waals and hydrogen bonding interactions to promote ...
  • Magnetic semiconductors for spin electronics 

    Alaria, Jonathan (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2010)
    The development of the relatively new field of spin electronics is based on the possibility of manipulating the spin of the electron through a structure. If one aspect is to develop new device architecture to inject, ...
  • Magnetism in dilute magnetic oxides and related materials 

    Gunning, Robert Denis (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2007)
    The work in this thesis is focussed on the magnetic properties of dilute ferromagnetic semiconducting oxides and related materials. Since the first report of unexpected room temperature ferromagnetism in anatase and rutile ...
  • Magnetization processes and low frequency fluctuations in micromagnetic structures 

    Diao, Zhu (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2010)
    The study presented in this thesis is concerned with low frequency fluctuations in magnetic systems. Three different systems were investigated. The first system is (CoFe/Pt)n multilayers patterned into micrometer scale ...
  • Mainstream and Margins: An exploration of the policy, practice and perspectives that have shapred part-time flexible learning in Irish Higher Education 2012-18 

    Hunt, Nuala (Trinity College Dublin. School of Natural Sciences. Discipline of Botany, 2020)
    Part-time flexible learning in Irish higher education has not been embedded within mainstream policy and was of marginal interest to policy makers and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs’). This subject also received ...
  • Maintaining wellness in fibromyalgia 

    Bergin-McLoughlin, Caroline (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Psychology, 2017)
    Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue and multiple tender points. It is a common, multidimensional disorder that is associated with complex symptomatology and ...
  • Making Personalised Flight Recommendations using Implicit Feedback 

    Coyle, Lorcan (University of Dublin, Trinity College. School of Computer Science and Statistics, 2004-10)
