I am a PhD candidate in the Circuits
and Systems Group at the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department of
Imperial College London,
supervised by Professor
George A. Constantinides and co-supervised by Dr. John Wickerson.
My PhD is supported and funded by the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral
Training in High Performance Embedded and Distributed Systems (HiPEDS).
Prior to my PhD, I completed an MPhil in Advanced
Computer Science at University of Cambridge.
My broad research interest is on designing customisable digital circuits for field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).
I am particularly interested in the efficiency of high-level synthesis (HLS), a process in which software is mapped to custom hardware.
In my PhD, I explore the efficiency of high-level synthesis for multi-threaded C programs.
