Dr. Karypis' research is best described as algorithm engineering. Professor Karypis' research interests concentrate on bioinformatics, cheminformatics, data mining, and high-performance computing. He has examined various problems in the areas of information retrieval, collaborative filtering, and electronic design automation for VLSI CAD. Within these areas, his research focuses on developing novel algorithms for solving important existing and/or emerging problems, and on developing practical software tools implementing some of these algorithms. In his research he strives to develop algorithms that are practical (they can be easily implemented on commercially available platforms), efficient (require as little time as possible), effective (do a good job in solving the underlying problem), and scalable (remain efficient and effective as the size of the problem and/or the number of processors is increased).
