Dr Simon Winberg

My area of expertise and interest is in computer engineering, with a direction towards high performance embedded computing. I have taught courses in computer architecture, digital systems, software engineering and programming in various languages. My current research areas focuses on FPGA-based reconfigurable computing, embedded systems, high performance computing (HPC) and high performance embedded computing (HPEC), and using these platforms for applications related to image processing, software defined radio, radio astronomy and radar system digital backed processing.

Research Interests

  • Embedded Systems
  • High performance Computing
