Professor Grama's research interests span the areas of parallel and distributed computing
architectures, algorithms, and applications. His work on distributed infrastructure deals with
development of software support for dynamic clustered and multiclustered environments. More recent
work has focused on resource location and allocation mechanisms in peer-to-peer networks. His
research on applications has focused on particle dynamics methods, their applications to dense linear
system solvers, and fast algorithms for data compression and analysis.
Professor Grama has authored several papers and co-authored a text book Introduction to Parallel
Computing: Design and Analysis of Algorithms with Vipin Kumar, Anshul Gupta, and George Karypis.
He is a member of American Association for Advancement of Sciences and Sigma Xi.
