to prospective graduate students:
We have several PhD student openings in our team in the general area of
embedded computing. If you are interested in joining us, please
send me your resume and a copy of your transcripts.
Ideal candidates would be hard working and self-driven individuals,
with strong background in lower division core courses (mathematics,
probability/statistics) and key computer engineering topics
(algorithms, computer software & hardware foundations). Strong
background in other areas of electrical engineering (particularly
signal processing, communications or control) in lieu of formal
computer engineering education would be acceptable.
I am interested in design methodologies for embedded and
(CPS), which utilize computing to monitor, service and control various
application-specific processes, including those
in the physical world. My work deals with modeling, analysis and
optimization of embedded software, programmable execution platforms,
tools for automating the design process. The area offers an
interesting blend of theory and practice: real-world applications
give rise to design challenges, and solutions are developed using a
of analytical and experimental techniques.
Currently, My students and I are
working on remote monitoring of patients' physical-therapy drills using
wearable sensors, and synthesis of streaming
embedded multi-processor platforms.
