PhD Research Opportunities

I am always looking for bright and enthusiastic students to join our research group. In particular, I would be very happy to discuss projects in the area of computer architecture, e.g. hardware for machine learning, many-core processors, RISC-V and lowRISC, hardware security, HW accelerator design etc.

The first step is for you to send me a short research proposal (follow link for advice). My email address is I am happy to provide some feedback on your proposal before you make your final submission.

If you contact more than one person in the Computer Laboratory, please make sure you let each person know that you have also contacted others.
