Phil Trinder

I've now moved to the School of Computing Science at Glasgow University, and have a New Home Page.

You should treat the information below as historical: it will gradually become out of date.

My former role was as a (full) Professor in, and deputy head of, the Computer Science department in the School of Mathematics and Computer Science at Heriot-Watt University.


My main research interests are the design, implementation and evaluation of high-level parallel and distributed programming languages. So I'm interested in how to better exploit multi- and many-core machines, Grids, Clouds, and other platforms. I was part of the Dependable Systems Research Group.
