Soft Error Resilience

If Power, Performance and Cost are considered to be the three pillars of Computer Architecture, I believe that Reliability is the foundation on which they stand. As a result of Very Large Scale Integration in modern processors, the transistors are becoming susceptible to Transient as well as Permanent Failures, generation after generation. In a world where computers are guarding safety and security of human lives, I am using my skillset to develop software level techniques that can detect and recover from such random failures. Under the guidance of Dr. Aviral Shrivastava, I am working on a new compiler level technique that can recover from every possible Silent Data Corruption caused by Single Event Upsets in collaboration with Moslem Didehban as a part of my Master's thesis.

Integrated Vector Management

To optimize the use of resources for Vector control in Tropical Countries, World Health Organization (WHO) is promoting Integrated Vector Management (IVM). IVM is a strategic use of resources to effectively control the spread of two or more vector-borne diseases considering the impact of multiple interventions. Under the guidance of Dr. Anuj Mubayi, we are developing a mathematical model to perform IVM for the control of Malaria, Leishmaniasis and Filariasis in an efficient manner in Eurasia and Latin America by taking the Vector population biology, Vector Transmission dynamics and their Genetic evolution into consideration.
