About the author:
Professor Tom Butler is a social scientist at University College Cork. A former satellite and microwave communications engineer and IT professional, he is more than familiar with the traditional safety issues relating to microwave RFR. His Pauline conversion from the engineering perspective on RFR thermal safety occurred through research engagements with the Chief Risk Officer of a global corporation who pointed out the significant risks to children from the non thermal effects of RFR.
These discussions and related events in his personal life stimulated Professor Butler’s interest in this important topic.
In a research context, Professor Butler is a former Government of Ireland Research Fellow, Principal Investigator (PI) of the Governance Risk and Compliance Technology Centre (2013-2018), PI of the SmaRT and SamRT4Reg Commercialisation Fund Projects (2017-2019), and Co-PI of two Marie
Skłodowska-Curie Career-FIT Fellowships in Artificial Intelligence (2019-2022).
With over €8.5 million in research funding on the application of digital technologies to date, he has 220
publications and 11 inventions. Tom is a member of the European Commission’s Expert Group on Regulatory Obstacles to Financial Innovation (ROFIEG) in the area of FinTech, a member of the Global
RegTech Council, and a member of the Financial Industry Enterprise Data Management Council (EDMC).
