Research title

Performance Analysis and Characterization of Managed Languages on Virtual Machines

Research summary

My undergraduate degree was BSc Computer Networking at the University of the West of Scotland, 2003-2007. I later completed an MSc in Information Technology at the University of Glasgow between 2010-2011. I am currently studying for a PhD at the University of Glasgow, which started in 2012. My research aims to improve the performance of Java Virtual Machine(JVM) languages. Their characteristic behaviour can be used to tune existing optimisations or introduce novel optimisations to the JVM.  

Research Interests:
- Profiling
- Optimisation
- Java Virtual Machine
- JVM Programming Languages
- Memory Management
