Research Staff


Charles Leech is a Senior Research Assistant on the EPSRC-funded PRiME Programme in the Cyber Physical Systems Research Group based in the School of Electronics and Computer Science. He was awarded his first class honours degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Southampton in 2013 where he is currently completing a PhD entitled "Runtime Energy Management of Multi-core Processors".

His work focuses on power and performance optimisation of computer vision applications on heterogeneous embedded systems. Additionally, he is involved in the development of software frameworks for runtime management of many-core systems. He has interests in approximate computing, stereo vision, and machine learning for embedded devices.
