Computational Science and Engineering @ IITI

Dr. Kapil Ahuja

Currently, I am working as an Associate Professor in Computer Science and Engineering and Dean of International Affairs at IIT Indore (India). Earlier, I completed a postdoc under Prof. Peter Benner at Max Planck Institute in Magdeburg (Germany). I completed my Ph.D. under the direction of Prof. Eric de Sturler from Virginia Tech (USA).

Broad Research Interests:
Broadly, I work in the field of Computational Science and Engineering. This encompasses use of Mathematics and Computer Science to solve Science and Engineering problems. Specifically, I have research interests as follows:

1) Mathematics: numerical linear algebra, numerical analysis, optimization.
2) Computer Science: computational intelligence, big data, social cloud.

My Google Scholar profile can be accessed here.

Current Research Problems:
1) Game Theoretic Approach to Social Cloud.
2) Stability Analysis and Preconditioners applied to Model Reduction.
3) Classification and Clustering for Biology Applications.
4) Optimization for Electronic Design Automation.

Research Collaborations:
USA: Virginia Tech, Sandia National Labs, Berkeley Lab, Univ. of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, and University of Houston.

Germany & France: TU Braunschweig, TU Dresden, TU Berlin, Max Planck Institute in Magdeburg, Univ. of Stuttgart, RWTH Aachen, and IMT Atlantique.
