I am a Research Fellow in the EASY group within the School of Informatics.

I work on the Brains on Board project and my research is focussed on the problems involved in simulating large-scale spiking neural networks on resource-constrained mobile platforms. I am also one of the main developers of the GeNN spiking neural network simulator.
