Scheduling theory, Real-time and safety-critical system design, Mixed-criticality systems
Brief Research Profile:
It has been said that one of the primary traits of accomplishing any type of task
is to start with the end goal in mind and accordingly work in order to achieve
it. A lot of students practice this starting from childhood until they have the
opportunity when the right time arrives. While my friends fondly talk about
their dreams, I just want to be good in my chosen field of research.
Real-time and embedded systems are moving from the traditional design
paradigm to integration of multiple functionalities onto a single computing plat-
form. Some of the functionalities are safety-critical and subject to certification.
The rest of the functionalities are non-safety critical and do not need to be cer-
tified. Designing efficient scheduling algorithms which can be used to meet the
certification requirement is challenging because the requirements of both the
system designers and certification authorities have to be met within the given time
