Current Research Interests:

    Distributed systems, cluster computing, mobile computing, and computer networks

Cluster computing has recently enjoyed an increase in popularity as a distributed computing architecture for its applications including supercomputing, large scale code coupling etc. The design of fault-tolerant algorithms for distributed cluster computing environment is a new challenging area. Dr. Gupta's research activity mainly concentrates on designing such algorithms. Besides, the growing importance of cellular, mobile ad-hoc, and sensor networks for their many applications, designing energy efficient communication protocols for such networks is a demanding area of research in which he is also currently involved.
