Research Interests 

  • Physical Design Automation : This research activity addresses the problem of VLSI circuit layout. The research deals with the algorithms that are used inside VLSI design automation tools, also called computer-aided design (CAD) tools.
  • Reconfigurable Computing Systems: The goal of configurable computing is to achieve most of the performance of custom architectures while retaining most of the flexibility of general purpose computing
  • Hardware/Software Co-Design for Embedded Systems: The main research involves developing a methodology for specification, automatic synthesis, and validation of this sub-class of embedded systems.
