Hi, I'm Leaderboard. I'm a fourth year student studying Computer Science and Mathematics, and just 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. This summer, I am looking at the angle of multithreaded programs, which includes analysing OS schedulers and seeing their run-time impact on performance.
