I am currently a research fellow on the EPSRC funded "PAnDA: Programmable Analogue and Digital Array" project in the Department of Electronics at the University of York under the supervision of Prof. Andy Tyrrell.
Previously, I was a research associate on the EPSRC funded e-Science pilot project "Meeting the Design Challenges of Next Generation Nano-CMOS Electronics", which was also under the supervision of Prof. Andy Tyrrell in the Department of Electronics at the University of York.
Prior to the Nano-CMOS project, I was a research student in the Department of Electronics at the University of York under the supervision of Dr Julian Francis Miller. My PhD thesis was on the automatic acquisition, evolution and re-use of modules in Cartesian Genetic Programming.
My research interests include most forms of Evolutionary Computation, especially Cartesian Genetic Programming (CGP), and its application to real-world problems in the field of Evolvable Hardware, such as analogue and digital design, optimisation and fault tolerance. I am also interested in image processing and analysis techniques.
