Dr. Bukkapatnam's research addresses the harnessing of high-resolution nonlinear dynamic information, particularly from wireless MEMS sensors, to improve the monitoring and prognostics of real-world systems, including ultraprecision and nanomanufacturing processes and machines, and cardiorespiratory processes. His research has led to 185 peer-reviewed publications (115 published/ accepted in journals and 70 in conference proceedings), 1 granted and five pending patents, and has been the basis for 17 Ph.D. dissertations. His research has received support from federal agencies including National Science Foundation, Department of Energy, and Department of Defense, and the private sector including General Motors, Ford, National Instruments, and the Central Rural Electric Cooperative.
