I am a PhD candidate at the University of Oxford with the AIMS CDT. I have an undergraduate degree in physics from the University of Heidelberg, where I wrote my thesis on superscalar out-of-order processors.
I am currently working on SnapperGPS, a small, low-cost, low-power GNSS location tracking system, specifically developed for wildlife tracking. My supervisor is Prof Alex Rogers.
SnapperGPS is an archival location tracking system that I co-developed as part of my PhD. It comprises a small, low-cost, low-power data logger and a web application that is used to configure the device and handles the post-processing of the data. SnapperGPS achieves real-world accuracies of 10m - 20m and can run for over ten years on a coin cell. Despite its name, SnapperGPS actually uses multiple global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), not just GPS. It also uses Galileo and BeiDou.
In 2021 SnapperGPS was deployed on nesting loggerhead sea turtles in Cape Verde. Currently, a SnapperGPS variant is being trialled on Manx Shearwaters in Wales and Northern Ireland.

Follow the project on Twitter for updates. We are hoping to make a version available for purchase soon, however, global chip shortages have been making this difficult.
Superscalar out-of-order execution has become the norm in modern processors. Yet there is little information in the literature about its implementation details. This thesis explores what new hardware structures superscalar out-of-order execution requires. It presents a design for a simple processor, implemented in SystemVerilog, that uses register renaming, reservation stations and a reorder buffer to dynamically schedule instructions.
