Some Current Projects

Data Center Scale Power Management

Automatic IT capacity provisioning, synergistic control of IT and cooling systems in data centers, FPGA accelerators for energy-efficiency improvement, DC-powered data centers. All of these projects involve significant systems prototyping, demonstrations and evaluations in a 80-rack fully-instrumented data center laboratory operated by ES2.

Cybersecurity at the Systems and Microarchitectural Level

Authenticating executions dynamically, secure storage techniques.

Flexible Electronics Sensor for Human Performance Monitoring

Sensor system for sending clinical quality ECG signals and other vital signs securely from a small flexible electronics patch. We designed the electronics, all software and aggressive power savings techniques for this device. This project is a collaboration with the Arias research group at UC Berkeley, i3 electronics (fab partner) and colleagues at Binghamton. My MS student Mohit Garg implemented the pre-fab prototype design, including the algorithms and software for the Phase I prototype.

Autonomous Indoor UAV

Vision-systems based offboard techniques for autonomous indoor navigation of stock quadcopters, swarm exploration using autonomous small quadcopters and ground vehicle.
