Dr. D J Greaves: PhD Students.

If you want to prepare to read for the PhD under my supervision you might benefit from a working knowledge of FSharp, MetaEdit+ and SystemC and from using LaTeX.

Current Research Students

Although these students appear to cover a lot of ground, one could note that most have something to do with managing spatial issues in terms of the placement and movement of loads between components.

  • Mr Jonathan Kimmitt (ARU) - Design of reliable embedded systems.

    Previous Research Students:

  • Dr Ali Zaidi - Spatial layout and incremental compilation for parallel computation in hardware and software.

  • Dr Jukka Lehtosalo - Toolchains for rapid prototyping with post-hoc type inference and security refinement.

  • Dr Milos Puzovic - H/W S/W bridging models for multi-threaded load balancing.

  • Dr Aisha Elsafty - Application and middleware primitives that span both managed and ad hoc scenarios.

  • Dr Stephen Kell - Specification and synthesis of adaptors for software components.

  • Dr Behzad Bastani - Requirements engineering (and synthesis?) for dynamically-bound and evolvable systems.

  • Dr Atif Alvi - Controlling pervasive domains with ontologies and rules in AutoHan.

  • Dr Anil Madhavapeddy - Online and static formal validation of legacy software.

  • Dr Sang Bum Suh - HomePNA MAC Design.

  • Dr Alberto Fernandes - Crosstalk in xDSL.
