Research

My research interests include design automation of intelligent cyber-physical systems and Internet-of-Things applications, cyber-physical security, energy-efficient CPS, and system-on-chip design.

Recent work in my group has been focusing on system level synthesis, optimization and modeling methodologies for cyber-physical systems. We are particularly interested in addressing timing, heterogeneity, security and energy challenges in CPS design and operation. Below is a short summary and you may check our lab website for more: IDEAS - Design Automation of Intelligent Systems Lab (update coming soon).
In past, I also worked on CAD for circuits, including projects on logic synthesis and physical design:
I am also very interested in SoC design methodologies and tools. While in Berkeley, I worked with Intel on a project of exploring different implementations of JPEG encoder on Intel MXP5800 media processor [C2]. While at the Strategic CAD Labs in Intel, I worked on system level modeling and exploration methodologies and tools for Intel SoCs.
