My area of research covers hardware/software codesign of embedded systems, with a particular emphasis on low-power and power-aware system designs. My effort can be divided into two complementary areas: design tools and system designs. The tools improve system designs systematically, while system designs provide motivating examples for the tools. I also have several interdisciplinary collaborations with civil engineering, mechanical engineering, and medicine.
