I work on FPGA virtualisation for Cloud computing, as a part of Advanced Processor Technology group at The University of Manchester and I am supervised by Dr. Dirk Koch and Dr. James Garside. My research focuses on transparent provision of flexible resource sharing among accelerators for maximising resource utilisation along with aggregated throughput and reduction in power consumption of the FPGA Clouds.
