Research interests

My primary research interests are in design methodologies, tools and architectures for digital integrated circuits (ICs) and next-generation computing platforms. Broadly speaking, I work in the following research areas:

  • Very Large-Scale Integration (VLSI) circuit design
  • Electronic design automation (EDA) tools and algorithms
  • Computer architecture
  • Embedded systems and system-level design

In my research, I address the new challenges that arise in the design of digital ICs with technology scaling. Some of these challenges include energy-aware computing and low power design, addressing the increasing variations in the manufacturing process, and fault tolerant computing.

Another thread of research investigates the adoption of either evolutionary or revolutionary new technologies that seek to enhance or replace conventional CMOS ICs. These include, for example, 3D integration and carbon nanotube transistors.
