Iam a lecturer (assistant professor) in Lancaster University in the School of Computing and Communications. Prior to joining Lancaster, I was part of the Compiler and Architecture Design Group at the University of Edinburgh's School of Informatics.

I am a member of the European Network of Excellence on High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation (HiPEAC).

My research investigate how compiler and runtime techniques can be used to optimise energy efficiency and performance for computing systems -- from as small as the individual smartphone in the pocket to as big as the ultra large scale data centre.

January, 2016: I have a Research Associate post available in parallel compiler optimisation. Contact me for informal enquiries.

January, 2016: I have two fully funded PhD studentships available in parallel compiler optimisation. Contact me for informal enquiries.

PhD studentship: I am interested in working with strong PhD students interested in my research areas. If you are interested in doing a PhD under my supervision, please contact me with a CV and a short text describing your background. Fundings are available for excellent candidates.
