Design Automation for Cyber-Physical Systems Lab

[ Research | Publications | Students | Teaching | Professional Services | Prospective students | Bio | CV ]


Areas of Interests: design automation for cyber-physical systems, cyber-physical security, energy-efficient CPS, SoC 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 (typically more up-to-date) lab website for more: Design Automation for Cyber-Physical Systems Lab .
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.


    Complete list of publications is available in my CV. Here are some selected papers in chronological order. Supervised students are delineated with an asterisk (*).
