  • NFN SISE (National Research NEtwork on Signal and Information Processing for Science and Engineering)
  • MixSVM (Mixed-Precision Support Vector Machine Classification on FPGAs)

Research Interests

I am interested in reconfigurable computing (aka computing with FPGAs). I study how the use of {distributed|embedded} reconfigurable computing platforms can improve the performance and power efficiency of

  • advanced digital signal processing applications (like beamforming or speaker localisation)
  • classification tasks in machine learning (focusing on support-vector machines and Bayesian network classifiers) and
  • scientific computing applications (like molecular dynamics, particle tracking, medical imaging or linear solvers).

A complete list of my publications is available at CiteULike. I am a member of ACM and SIAM. You will find me on the program committee of the Workshop on UnConventional High Performance Computing. If we met lately at a conference or meeting, here's a link to my profile at LinkedIn.
