About Me

I am part of the Advanced Processor Technology (APT) group here at The University of Manchester and I am supervised by Mr. Graham Riley and Dr. Mikel Lujan . My research is part funded by ARM and IS-ENES2 Project.
My research topic is "Efficient execution of Convolutional Neural Networks on low power heterogenous systems". If I had to sum up my research in three words, it would be Convolutional Neural Networks ( a.k.a "ConvNets"), Heterogenous Computing and Energy-Efficiency.
