Research Interests

I have a longstanding interest in software and design methods for VLSI design. This includes the STRICT design language and system. Most of my recent work has been in the area of asynchronous design methods for VLSI, based on the use of Petri Nets. A recurring application area for our work is security and encryption technology.

My current interest is in the design of high-speed circuits for financial applications, based on asynchronous Network-on-Chip technology and logarithmic arithmetic.

For a list of funded research projects and publications, please visit our research group's web site.

Feel free to have a look at my Google Scholar profile.

Teaching Activities

I am interested in the application of Courseware to the teaching of Machine Architecture, and VLSI. I participated in all past and current TLTP-EDEC projects, and obtained a grant from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne to develop courseware for teaching assembly language programming.
