David Snowdon

Welcome to my personal web site. I am presently unemployed, having recently left a small hedge fund. I have a PhD earned in the embedded, real-time and operating systems group at NICTA, where my focus was power-aware operating systems and practical dynamic voltage and frequency scaling for high-end battery-constrained embedded systems. I was also involved with the UNSW Solar Racing Team for many years, being responsible for all electrical and some mechanical aspects of the Sunswift 3 design, as well as one of the mainstays of the highly successful Sunswift IV project (presently the Guiness record holder for the world’s fastest solar car). I’m a generalist, with interests in software and hardware, as well as some aspects of mechanical engineering.
