Kundan joined the University of St. Thomas in the fall of 2011. Previously he was a faculty member at Bucknell University, PA where he taught courses in Exploring Engineering Design, Digital Circuits, Computer Architecture and Digital Integrated Circuit Design. With funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) his research explores runtime error detection and avoidance techniques in nanometer circuit structures. In addition, his work also explores the exciting field of embedded computing using reconfigurable hardware and mobile robotics. His research has led to multiple peer-reviewed conference and journal papers including seven co-authored papers with undergraduate students.
