I'm currently a Ph.D. student in the Jamaica group. My supervisors are Dr. Mikel Luján and Professor Ian Watson. I've been at the Computer Science department at Manchester for over four years now, where I've been awarded a BSc(hons) in Computer Science and an Msc in Advanced Computer Science.

My current research area is avoiding conflicts in transactional memory. However my wider interests include most aspects of parallel programming and multi-core chip processors. Especially work on optimistic execution like Thread Level Speculation and Transactional Memory. I also have a soft spot for Machine Learning, Formal Methods and Computer Graphics.

My hobbies currently include drawing and painting.
