Research Interests

Logic Design & Switching Theory

Current research interest is in the studies of exclusive-OR switching circuits (also known as Reed-Muller polynomial or expansion), which include minimization, analysis of transient behavior, hazard-free design, and applications to universal logic modules and programmable devices.
