I am interested in conducting research in the following areas:
1. Microelectronics and ASIC Design
2. Communications System Design
3. Microprocessor Applications and Embedded System Design
Dr. N.D. Gohar visited Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden from 1st July - 3rd September 2008. This visit was carried out in relation with the project titled "Software Defined Radio (SDR) Development Using Network-on-Chip (NOC) Based Rapid Prototyping Platform (REXAPP)". The project is a joint venture of Group for Research in ASIC and FPGA (GRAF) at NUST School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (SEECS) and KTH, Sweden. The visit was carried out on invitation of Dr. Ahmed Hemani from KTH, Sweden. The main purpose for the visit was to chalk out the detailed specifications for the project and problem statements and course work requirements for the PhD students. The visit also paved way for further collaboration between the two universities and couple of other project proposals have been developed. Another positive outcome of the visit is the agreement between the two universities to start a joint MS program in System-on-Chip from next year. A proposal has also been developed for that for formal approval. Overall, the visit has been very productive and successful.
