I'm deeply passionate about making timing-predictable, safety-critical cyber-physical systems a reality through algorithm-SoC co-design, with a particular focus on autonomous driving applications. My expertise in real-time & embedded systems also drives my interest in developing computer systems that incorporate timing-critical components. This extends to projects like real-time EV fleet charging recommendation systems and the implementation of edge-enabled smart infrastructures in smart cities. Publications of my research can be found here.
