Who am i
I am a senior lecturer and researcher at the University of the West of England were I’m working on teaching and following research in the Internet of Things (IoT), particually with application to BLE but more recently I have also become interested in LoRaWan and its application to building communities.
Recent research has also included 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.
