My interests in Computing are broad - ranging over theoretical, experimental, developmental, and educational aspects of computing. My work experience includes teaching, academic research, experimental research & development, software product development in the industry, and intellectual property development.
My areas of interest appear below listed by subject categories but not ordered in any way. The topics may appear to be disparate but there are underlying themes to be discerned.
If you are interested in discussing any of these or other topics of research, please feel free to email me (sundarb AT pilani DOT bits-pilani DOT ac DOT in) or drop by my office (Room 1104-H) - I'm always eager to listen, discuss, and venture into new areas so that I can learn, educate, apply, and possibly succeed (or possibly fail!).
