Computer architecture, parallel processing, computer arithmetic, cryptography. Globalization/internationalization of higher education.


A. O. studied computer science as an undergraduate and postgraduate student: B.Sc. (Hons.), University of Manchester; M.S., New York University--Tandon School; Ph.D., University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

He has had an extensive international career in academia, having been a faculty member at the University of Delaware (USA), the Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand), Halmstad University (Sweden), Flinders University (Australia), Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), Teesside University (UK), and Yonsei University and Seoul National University (South Korea).   He has also worked full-time for several years as a consultant to academia and industry.

His interests include application-specific hardware architectures and arithmetic for signal processing applications, and in these areas he provides a service to the profession as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Real-Time Image Processing (Springer) and a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Signal Processing Systems (Springer).   He has also had a long and ongoing relationship with the IEEE International Symposium on Low-Power and High-Speed Chips (COOL CHIPS), which is held annually in Yokohama, Japan---as Vice-Chair from 2003 to 2008 and a member of the International-Advisory-Committee Member since 2009.


Current research is on high-performance hardware arithmetic units for cryptography (especially for finite-field computations) and on applications of residue number systems.
