Biography/ Background

Senior Lecturer
Ph.D., B.E. (Hons), B.Sc., MIEEE

ResearcherID: A-8373-2008 

Braden Phillips is a senior lecturer in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Adelaide and is director of CHiPTec, the The Centre for High Performance Integrated Technologies and Systems. 

Braden’s research focus is the design of new computing architectures for artificial intelligence, and in particular the Street Engine processor for cognitive computing. This work draws upon his research interest and experience in digital arithmetic, digital microelectronics, computer architecture, information security, and real-time and embedded systems.

Prior to the completion of his PhD thesis, ’An Optimised Implementation of Public Key Cryptography for Smart Card Processors’, Braden worked as a process control engineer and was a founding partner in Current Dynamics, an electronic hardware design venture. He was a lecturer at Cardiff University in South Wales for 2 years before returning to the University of Adelaide in 2002.
