RESEARCH AREAS

Power Aware Computing: I have developed a new power aware task scheduling software technique for mission critical applications that have power constraint as one of the optimization parameters; with applications to software defined radio and wireless communication devices.

Computer Graphics: I have been working on efficient graphics processors for 3D modeling and new techniques for Image Based Modeling and Rendering.

Computer Architecture: In this area, I have been involved in the development of high performance microprocessors based on VLIW, reconfigurable DSP and superscalar technology for applications in multimedia and DSP.
