Professor Khani’s research interests span a broad variety of fields, including computer architecture, central processing unit (CPU) and graphics processing unit (GPU) microarchitecture; machine learning, risk analysis, estimation theory and their applications in various areas ranging from medical sciences to business and finance. More recently, he has been particularly interested in general-purpose GPU computing or GPGPU which is the use of a GPU to do general purpose scientific and engineering computing. Within this area he is investigating parallel applications, specifically heat transfer and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) problems, data structures and algorithms, scalability, parallel architectures and programming machine learning algorithms for the GPU and particularly the implementation of machine learning in GPU microarchitecture. Professor Khani is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Architecture from Western Michigan University.
