The project is run in collaboration with
Imperial College and Heriot-Watt University. The specific challenge
that is addressed in this project is how to exploit the parallelism of
a given computing platform, e.g. a multicore CPU, a graphics processor
(GPU) or a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), in the best possible
way, without having to change the original program. My work focuses on
creating an architecture on top of an FPGA that is best positioned to
exploit parallelism, especially in the context of scientific
computations, and to make this architecture programmable in a way that
it can be done automatically by compilation tools.

At the University, I am part of the ENDS
(Embedded, Networked and Distributed Systems) and GPG
(Glasgow Parallelism Group) research groups.
I am collaborating with Professor Saji Hameed
at the University of Aizu
, Japan, along the lines of high performance computing (HPC) for weather models.
In a similar context, I have just started working with Dr Safee Ullah
, Lahore, Pakistan. Our
collaboration is in the area HPC for computational cancer biology.
am a Glasgow University / ISLI alumnus and my Doctorate
project was on creating a Dynamically Reconfigurable Platform for the
In an altogether other life, I have been involved with the
Mianwali, Pakistan, which is an Associate
College of the University of Bradford, and an interesting and
ambitious project. I still maintain academic links with the institute.

my role as a Research Associate, I primarily work on the EPSRC funded
project “Exploiting Parallelism through Type Transformations for Hybrid
Manycore Systems”, whose principal investigator is Dr Wim
