About Me

I am currently working towards a PhD within the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh where I am a member of both the Institute for Computing Systems Architecture and the Compiler and Architecture Design Group. My PhD advisers are Dr Hugh Leather and Dr Zheng Wang.

So far I have obtained two degrees, a Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Software Engineering and a Master of Science in Informatics specialising in Computer Systems and High Performance Computing, both from the University of Edinburgh. More detailed information can always be found via my LinkedIn profile.
