My research interests include Heterogeneous Computing and Mathematical Modeling. Heterogeneous computing devices(GPUs, FPGAs, multicore systems and distributed systems) offer tremendous advantages in terms of handling problems with widely different characteristics and computational requirements. Powerful mathematical modeling techniques combined with diverse computing architecture systems greatly enable us to study problems with high fidelity and unprecedented precision. Please visit our group webpage Heterogeneous Computing and Mathematical Modeling for more information.
