Research Interests

My primary research interests lie in the area of is low-power high performance digital systems design, asynchronous design and self-timed digital system design. The particular focus of my research is the development of power-aware algorithms and techniques for system timing optimization. The results of this research are extremely useful for applications involving mobile systems. Other applications benefiting from this sort of work include: power and energy efficiency, power management, high performance computing and computational science.
