PhD projects

My research vision is to create novel architectures and systems, which are dynamically self-optimising and inherently fault-tolerant, by porting enabling features and mechanisms from Nature to hardware.
Therefore, I offer a number of research projects in the areas of fault-tolerance, autonomous systems, bio-inspired hardware, evolutionary computation, optimisation and reconfigurable architectures.

If you made any changes in Pure these will be visible here soon.

Personal profile

Research interests

I am Reader (Associate Professor) in Electronic Engineering (University of York). My research interests include variability-aware analogue and digital hardware design, biologically motivated models of hardware design, evolutionary computation, and autonomous fault-tolerance. My vision is to create novel architectures and autonomous systems, which are dynamically self-optimising and inherently fault-tolerant, by porting key enabling features and mechanisms from nature to hardware. I am/have been co-investigator on EPSRC grants, MARCH (EP/V006029/1), SpInspired (EP/R032823/1), eFutures Network,(EP/S032045/1), Bio-inspired Adaptive Architectures and Systems (EP/K040820/1), Graceful (EP/L000563/1) and PAnDA (EP/I005838/1), a DSTL grant on unconventional computing and Innovate UK KTPs in High-speed Embedded Vision Systems and Adaptive Networks for Spacecraft. Recent EPSRC awards are highly cross-disciplinary projects investigating computational properties and creating novel architectures underpinned by principles from Biology, Physics and Electronics. I am SMIEEE, co-chair of the International Conference on Evolvable Systems (ICES), member of York Cross-disciplinary Centre for Systems Analysis (YCCSA), and Chair of IEEE Task Force on Evolvable Hardware.
