Assistant Professor, San Diego State University
Dr. Donyanavard's research revolves around self-aware computing systems: he generally works to enable resource-constrained systems to make intelligent self-management decisions at runtime, typically for high-performance cyber-physical applications. His current research focus is resource-aware autonomy, with a goal of ultimately enabling deployment of full mobile autonomy. To help achieve this, Dr. Donyanavard bridges the gap between complex realtime algorithms for environmental understanding and autonomy, and networks of battery-powered resource-constrained devices. His approach involves timeseries data analysis, predictive modeling of computer systems and applications, and decision-making algorithms for realtime optimization.
