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.
