Vasan Kamalakkannan

About Me

I am a PhD candidate supervised by Dr Gihan Mudalige and Dr Suhaib A Fahmy. Prior to joining Warwick, I worked in Wave Computing as an application engineer. I received my bachelors degree in electronic and telecommunication engineering from University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka.

Research Interests

My current research work focus on Domain Specific Language based translation to accelerate Numerical Algorithms on structured meshes on FPGA devices. In a broad view I am interested in DSLs, hardware design & algorithm optimisation for Reconfigurable Computing.
