Research | Current
Current research focus is on simplifying parallel programming, with a particular interest in embedded and mobile systems (e.g. smartphones, Raspberry Pi). The hope is to provide the benefits of high-level functional programming languages while retaining much of the speed and efficiency of C or Assembly. Also interested in computer vision, especially the use of parallel programming to improve the speed of processing for real-time applications.
Achieved First Class Honours for BSc(Hons), including two 'first in class' distinctions.
