Projects

Our innovatory has two distinct but synergistic thrusts, with the focus being on computational and data analytics innovations.

Thrust 1: Internet-of-Things and Scalable Databases for Digital Agriculture

Broadly, our group is interested in designing algorithms for deploying IoT efficiently for the digital agriculture domain.

Thrust 2: Computational Genomics and Precision Health

Broadly, our group is interested in designing algorithms for deploying IoT efficiently for the digital agriculture domain.

By studying the way living cells compute, I wish to create more energy-conserving IoT and high-performance computing solutions, such as, designing intelligent sensors for deploying in farms. Thus, my lab is interested in in-sensor analytics on the IoT front and living cell “analytics” on the computational genomics front, “learning” from the efficient computation that occurs in living cells for executing distinct living cell functions. I see synthetic biology as an effective bridge to actually design some of these computationally efficient circuits using nucleotide-based building blocks. Check back for an exciting new project starting soon in this bridging area.
