BSc(hons), PhD


Professor Neil Audsley received a BSc (1984) and PhD (1993) from the Department of Computer Science at the University of York, UK. In 2013 he received a Personal Chair from the University of York, where he leads a team researching Real-Time Embedded Systems. Specific areas of research include high performance real-time systems (including aspects of big data); real-time operating systems and their acceleration on FPGAs; real-time architectures, specifically memory hierarchies, Network-on-Chip and heterogeneous systems; scheduling, timing analysis and worst-case execution time; model-driven development.
Professor Audsley's research has been funded by a number of national (EPSRC) and european (EU) grants, including TEMPO, eMuCo, ToucHMore, MADES, JEOPARD, JUNIPER, T-CREST, DreamCloud, Safire and Phantom.
