|Postgraduate Opportunities:|| Hardware compilation for embedded systems
using FPGAs, parallelisation using GPUs. Compiler work using loop/data transformations implemented
in LLVM and application studies in SystemC and computer architecture work using simics. I am also developing an interest in decompilation.
I'm interested in helping suitable people to write Marie
Curie fellowships to be held at MMU, see www.cordis.lu or email me for more details, the next call should be announced soon.
||Postgraduate Vacancies:||My projects will be in the area of hardware compilation and embedded applications for FPGAs, virtualisation, dynamic binary rewriting and instrumentation. If you are interested in these areas then please email me. We expect to have some Ph.D. vacancies in the Novel Computation Group under EU, EPSRC and UK RAE funding.||Postgraduate Students:||Adeel Hashmi 10/2006-- self funding Ph.D student Hardware Acceleration of Snort Intrusion Detection|
