1. Theoretical Computer Science
Theoretical Computer Science (TCS) focuses on studying and understanding the nature of computation and, as a consequence of this understanding, aims to provide more better and efficient methodologies. Our TCS group mainly work on combinatorics, graphs, parameterized algorithms, computational algebra and type theory.

2. Machine Learning and Applications
Our group has adopted a two-prong approach. On one hand, we are interested in building mathematical models and developing efficient ML techniques to solve real-world problems. On the other hand, we are interested in resolving open questions related to learning and generalisation in deep learning and reinforcement learning. Our current focus areas are developing efficient models and scalable optimization algorithms to progress for analysing both time series and whole-genome molecular biology data with structural constraints, developing new deep learning and reinforcement learning algorithms with improved interpretability, scalability, reliability and efficiency, and in combining Bayesian methodologies with deep learning.

3. Systems Engineering
Our group consists of researchers working on various aspects of computer systems engineering, right from post-silicon validation all the way up to distributed and interconnected systems. A few of our focus areas are detecting anomalies in execution traces of many-core SoCs, energy-efficient high-performance computing, secure validation, energy efficient reconfigurable accelerator for post-quantum crypto in a multi-core system on chip, architecture for reliable and secure automotive, compilers and domain specific language (DSL), energy efficiency in IoT Infrastructure, and resource allocation in distributed and interconnected systems. Our proposed Advanced Architecture Lab (AAL) aims to facilitate research on novel micro-architectural features and system design taking into account the needs of a wide variety of applications, and leveraging the state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies to meet its objectives of: (i) performance, (ii) energy efficiency, and (iii) security.
