PhD Supervision

Current PhD students:

  • Zou Jie, Resource Efficient and Resillient Mixed-Criticality Scheduling for Autonomous Driving Systems, co-supervised (2019-)

For potential PhD students:

I am interesed to supervise the following PhD topics:

  • Novel scheduling and allocation methods and models for real-time systems;
  • Inteference and contention modelling and analysis of multi-cores;
  • Scheduling on multi-cores / CPU-GPU hetergeneous platforms;
  • Timing assurance of robotic and autonomous systems;
  • Multi-robot systems scheduling, management and coordination.

Please be aware that, by the university policy, I am only able to co-supervise PhD students with a primary supervisor in place who is a permanent university staff (with title Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader/Processor). Please do submit PhD applications to the primary supervisor but include me if you want my co-surpervision. I am happy to give more information on request.
