I am a Research Associate with the Numerical Linear Algebra Group at the University of Manchester, working with Professor Nicholas J. Higham. I received a B.Sc. (Hons.) degree in Computer Science in 2016 and a PhD degree in Computer Science in 2020, both from the University of Manchester.

During my doctoral degree I was part of two neuromorphic computing projects, called SpiNNaker and SpiNNaker2, that aim to build efficient spiking neural network (SNN) simulators. There I explored numerical aspects and performance of SpiNNaker software and developed hardware accelerators for elementary functions in SpiNNaker2.

My research interests include: computer arithmetic (fixed- and floating-point software/hardware arithmetics), numerical linear algebra, high-performance computing, mathematical software, performance optimization and benchmarking.

Main programming and software skills: C, MATLAB, Python, CUDA, Verilog, ARM assembly, Git, LaTeX, Bash.

I occasionally contribute to the NLA group blog.


Oct 11, 2021 Anymatrix v1.0 matrix collection released on GitHub. Paper preprint (PDF) and a Users’ Guide (PDF) are available. Also, a new blog post on Plotting Circles to Test Low Precision Arithmetics and Rounding Modes.
Sep 21, 2021 New paper on Stochastic Rounding: Algorithms and Hardware Accelerator in the proceedings of IJCNN 2021.
Sep 13, 2021 Two new extended abstracts in the book of abstracts of the SCAN2020 symposium (13-15 Sep. 2021). One on CPFloat (with M. Fasi) and one on fixed-point exp implementation (talk slides).
