With the expected demise of Moore’s Law, there is a renewed challenge to explore computer architecture and lower power technologies such as FPGAs in the design of new, more powerful embedded systems. This has major implications for the design of autonomous systems, embedded AI systems and wireless communications.

Roger’s research is involved in the design and implementation of innovative systems for image processing systems, security systems for WiFi-based networks and embedded AI platforms for data analytics. There is as focus on practical implication and close collaboration with industry.
