Description

Over the past four decades, my research interests have evolved in three directions: Industrial Electronics, Signal Processing, and Computational Intelligence. Currently, I am particularly interested in Sustainable and Energy Efficient Data Centers as well as in Cybersecurity and Machine Learning.

See the OA article on "Direct-to-Chip Liquid Cooling" that is based on the research I carried out with the High-Performance Computing team, during my sabbatical at UiT The Arctic University of Norway.
