N/A, University of St Andrews
Hi, I'm Leaderboard. I'm a fourth year student (Senior Honours) studying Computer Science and Mathematics, and spent my third year abroad at Purdue University (Report 6 on GitHub describes my experience there!). My research interests lie in computer architecture, operating systems and compiler optimisations, and last summer I analysed the effects of compiler optimisations on the run-time performance of different applications. A write-up on this is available at https://github.com/Leader-board/Reports/blob/master/Report%205%20-%20Compiling%20and%20optimising%20Laidlaw.pdf.
In the summer of 2020, I looked at the angle of multithreaded programs, which includes analysing OS schedulers and seeing their run-time impact on performance.
As Lord Laidlaw, our Chairman, and Susanna Kempe, our CEO, met with scholars and alumni from around the world, many requested a way to meet ambitious peers, participate in leadership-in-action initiatives and collaborate on research projects for a better present. We welcome you to the Laidlaw Scholars Network, a social utility tool that allows you to do just this! Be the new generation of passionate, adaptive, ethical leaders.
