My research focuses on interconnection networks, the networks which traditionally connect shared-memory and message-passing multiprocessor systems, but have recently been deployed in a wide array of communication systems (I/O interconnect, Internet routers, high-speed LANs, storage networks, on-chip networks). In these systems, the demand for bandwidth is fast overwhelming the limits of bus-based and crossbar-based fabrics and interconnection networks have surfaced as a viable alternative.

While the performance of interconnection networks is critical, its power consumption is becoming increasingly as important as performance. A power-driven approach is needed, requiring major innovations in interconnection network design, from its theoretical foundations, to architectures, to circuits design.
