Syed Waqar Nabi is a Research Associate at the School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow, and is also an alumnus of the University. In his role as a Research Associate, he works on the EPSRC funded project “Exploiting Parallelism through Type Transformations for Hybrid Manycore Systems”, whose principal investigator is Dr Wim Vanderbauwhede. His focus is on FPGAs as the target device, where the overall challenge that is addressed in the project is how to exploit the parallelism of a given computing platform, e.g. a multicore CPU, a graphics processor (GPU) or a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), in the best possible way, without having to change the original program.
He is part of the Glasgow Parallelism research group (GPG) in the Glasgow Systems Section (GLASS) of the School of Computing Science.
