I am a computer science postdoc researcher at Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh.

My main research interests are

I currently work on the EPSRC Rathlin project, designing and implementing an image processing DSL for FPGA, and a dataflow transformations framework detailed in our JSPS 2015 paper.

My PhD research investigated fault tolerant functional computation for HPC and Cloud architectures. More details are here. In 2013, I developed distributed systems in CloudHaskell for an American start-up company. Between 2010-2013, I worked on the EPSRC project SerenA project, transforming research processes by identifying unexpected cross disciplinary connections using multi-agent and semantic web technologies.

I’m interested in functional programming languages, and contribute to a number of Haskell libraries, because open source software is the progressive way to share software. I organise a monthly functional programming Edinburgh meetup EdLambda.
