Who am i
I am an associate professor at the University of the West of England and co-director of the Computer Science Research Centre within the Deparment of Computer Science and Creative Technology. My main focus of research is in the area of physical computing.
- Internet of Things (IoT), 5G and other radio technologies, with application to short range low power, such as BLE, and LPWAN, such as LoRaWAN and its application to building communities.
- Programming language design, implememtation, and application. Currently I'm particually focused on the design of digital musical instruments and DSP.
- I also work in the area of GPGPU, compilers, and functional programming. I developed a new CFG abstraction for SIMD execution and a representation of SOA that is easy for programmers, among other things.
