My research and interest areas:
My areas of expertise and interest are generally related to Computer Engineering, with a direction towards Smart Sensor systems and High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC). I have taught courses in computer architecture, embedded systems, software engineering, digital systems, programming in various languages (including C, C++, Python, Java and MATLAB as well as HDLs Verilog and VHDL) and taught various topics of electrical/electronic engineering fundamentals.
My current research areas involve FPGA-based reconfigurable computing, embedded systems, high performance computing (HPC) and high performance embedded computing (HPEC), and using these platforms for applications related to sensor fusion, smart sensor design, image processing, software-defined radio (SDR), Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) mitigation, radio astronomy and radar system digital backed processing. I am particularly excited about the new technologies and approaches in the design and development of HPEC systems, and I am delighted to be involved in training students in these techniques within the context of postgraduate work and in an undergraduate course on this topic, specifically, the High Performance Embedded Systems EEE4120F course for which training and learning materials for this course are provided as open courseware resources. The Elec Eng department has a number of other course materials offered as open courseware, which can be explored at: http://ocw.ee.uct.ac.za/.
If you are are a UCT student in the EE department going into Honours / 4th year soon, and are looking for project topics, you're welcome to see what topics I have planned for the next semester of EEE4022/Hons projects.
