About Simon Hollis

Brief Bio

Simon Hollis is a Lecturer in Computer Science at the University of Bristol, with particular interests in microelectronics, VLSI design, and security architectures (see my Research Interests page).


Under the supervision of Dr Simon Moore, he undertook a PhD entitled Pulse-based, On-chip Interconnect at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory. He also holds an MA (Hons) in Computer Science from the same institution.


I am a member of the Microelectronics Research Group

here in the Department of Computer Science, University of Bristol.

I also lead the Many-core Research Project, here in the Department of Computer Science.

Our major current project is the Swallow Many-core Project.

I have a separate page which describes in detail my current research interests.

I also maintain a big list of research collaboration tools, which I have found useful during my research.

UK Async Forum

In 2009, I hosted the UK Async Forum, here at Bristol. The website for this UK-based academic workshop, is here.


See my publications page.



I have a list of project ideas for final year students. I teach the following course units for the Computer Science Batchelor's and Master's courses, as well as some postgraduate taught students:

COMS12303: Origins of Computer Science (Unit Director and Lecturer)

COMS12600: Introduction to Computer Architecture (Lecturer)

COMS35102: System Integration (Unit Director and Lecturer)


I am no longer one of the department's Undergraduate Admissions Tutors. Please address any enquires to contact our Undergraduate Admissions Co-ordinator. Contact details and course information are available at our admissions website.
