Computer science PhD candidate, supervised by Prof. Thomas Nowotny and Dr. Luc Berthouze.

I study a combination of numerical analysis, supercomputer programming and dynamical systems simulations. I am a developer at the GeNN team (GPU-enhanced Neural Networks; available at

I am personally developing an arbitrary-precision affine arithmetic library based on GNU MPFR (MPFA; available at, and a range arithmetic library for NVIDIA CUDA GPUs (libcudarange; available at
