About Me

Best MSc Dissertation (out of 153 people) in my year and winner of an ACM Student Research Competition during my PhD, I am in the process of writing-up my Doctoral Thesis on substantially reducing the cost of creating machine learning based heuristics, as they apply to compile-time and run-time optimisations.

I am also actively seeking an entry-level or graduate-level engineering or research position, preferably within Central Scotland, but I would consider relocating.
