Our current research is focused on the areas of:
- compilers and architectures
- parallel computing
- wireless networking
- processor-automated synthesis by iterative analysis.
Our wireless communication group is particularly strong, and presently working on expanding wireless reach within Scotland.
While the scope for research is wide, each area is underpinned by our fundamental aims:
