Design and Mapping of embedded systems

Nowadays, we cannot imagine a world without computer systems. Especially embedded systems are used in almost every field, e.g. in cars, aircrafts, multimedia devices, telecommunication equipments etc. Each field has different characteristics which impose diverse constraints in
the system. This wide diversity and the continuous increase in the system requirements has significantly enlarged the complexity of the systems. As the objectives are usually contradictory, the design of an embedded system that meets the requirements, such as performance, area and energy consumption, keeps the overall design cost low and has a short
time-to-market, is a highly challenging task. Improving the exploration of the design space leads to more near-to-the-optimal designs within less time and effort. In that context, I am particularly interested in the design and mapping of near-optimal embedded systems. I mainly devote my research to multidimensional Design Space Exploration (DSE) methodologies and mapping methodologies , including memory management, scheduling and assignment and run-time management, for embedded systems and many/multicore systems, with real-time and mixed-critical
characteristics. My goal is to contribute to the research in the embedded systems design by proposing near-optimal and scalable methodologies for designing and mapping of the
systems taking into account the constraints of the target domain under study.
