Engineering Biology in Cambridge



I am a Professor in Computer Architecture at the Department of Computer Science and Technology. My current research is focused in the area of efficient and secure machine learning, hardware accelerators for machine learning, computer architecture and open-source chip design.

I am a founder and director of lowRISC. lowRISC is a not-for-profit company using collaborative engineering to develop and maintain open-source silicon designs and tools. lowRISC stewards the OpenTitan project.

I was also a founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, a UK charity that promotes the study of computer science and electronics at the school level.

I am a Fellow of St. John's College and Director of Studies for Computer Science at St. John's College and Peterhouse College.
