Dr Chris Crispin-Bailey
I am Dr Chris Crispin-Bailey, a Lecturer In the University of York Department of Computer Science, and a member of the Advanced Computer Architectures Group. Receiving my PhD in 1996, I have subsequently been involved with more than 30 bids and proposals totalling over £34million of funding applications, with £4million successfully obtained to date.
My previous positions include a 'Teaching Research-Fellowship', and Senior Lecturer with roles suchas course-leader, course validation panel membership, external examiner for Advanced MSc courseprogrammes, and director of a DTI funded research centre.
I teach topics recently including Digital Architectures, Circuits and Systems (DACS), Chips to Systems (CTS) and Hardware Architecture Projects (HAPR). I also manage the JavaBreadBoard project- a free e-learning toolset for electronics.
My current research activities include several new and/or ongoing projects which I lead. (See links below)
My research portfolio also includes several previous major achievements (full list), including the Directorship of the DTI-funded AMADEUS Virtual Research Centre, hosted by the University of York, with a budget of over £3.4 million, with funding split 50/50 between government and private UK industry partnerships. Other projects I have led or co-supervised include VIDEOWARE, UFO, HIPIC, among others. In total I have been associated with in-excess of £33m of research funding applications to date (1996-2011), resulting in around £4m in awards (averaging roughly £2m/£260k per year). This includes, most recently a £12m bid to the Technology Strategy Board for an Innovation Knowledge Centre for Green ICT technologies, in association with a number of colleagues.
My core research areas include multicore architectures, stack machines, code optimisation, code translation, ubiquitous systems hardware and applications, VLSI, VHDL, and FPGA technologies, and use of electronic learning tools. Application areas include digital technology for sustainability, embedded and pervasive smart environments, Biomedical electronics applications, and high performance and future-scalability of computer systems.
