Dr. D J Greaves: PhD Students.
If you want to read for the PhD under my supervision you will need
to already be familiar with most of these: system simulation, queuing theory,
digital logic, compiler design, formal specification and formal language semantics.
In terms of languages, please make sure you are fluent in OCaml/FSharp, System Verilog,
SystemC and at least one assembler language. Alternatively, we can do something
in analogue electronics, from subsonic to microwave.
