Prof David Thomas


I studied Computer Science as an undergrad at the Dept. of Computing in Imperial, then did my PhD in digital architectures in the same department. After 5 years as a researcher associate and then research fellow, in 2010 I moved to the Dept. of Electrical
and Electronic Engineer at Imperial as a Lecturer, then Senior Lecturer. In 2021 I joined the Electronics and Computer Science Dept. as a Professor. Both my research and teaching interests are at the intersection of software and hardware, particularly in the interaction and
relationships between programming languages, algorithms, computer architecture and digital implementation. A lot of my research involves the use of FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays), as they provide a great playground for exploring and implementing new digital architectures, such as custom CPUs, application-specific accelerators, or new programming paradigms such as event-driven computing.
