I have been working in the general area of
design of digital systems since 1999. In the early days i focused on
transistor level design of very fast pipeline structures, namely
asynchronous wave pipelines. That was also the topic of my
M.Sc. thesis in 2002. Later on, around year 2004, I started designing
a Java co-processor core and a virtual machine which uses the
core. This development led to my Ph.D. dissertation in 2008. Since
then I have expanded the Java co-processor system to support multiple
parallel cores, and currently the largest system contains eight (8)
cores. Naturally the system is actually implemented, using FPGA
technology, instead of just being simulated. The FPGA technology has
been gaining more and more of my research interests which now include
embedded systems (both HW and SW), dynamic reconfiguration, fault
tolerance and space applications.
Most recently I have moved towards imaging and image manipulation. Some of the work has been done on FPGA hardware, while some has been purely software. The topics include monitoring high power (10kW) laser welding, detecting space debris from telescope images and augmented reality related stuff.
