His thesis entitled "Shared Resource Contention-aware Schedulability Analysis of Hard Real-Time Systems" offers novel solutions for accurate quantification of shared resource contention that applications may suffer on COTS multicore platforms. Multicore processors have become mainstream today across several domains. However, their use in hard real-time systems, i.e., systems that execute tasks with stringent timing requirements, is still under scrutiny. The main challenge hindering the use of COTS multicore processors in hard real-time systems is the timing unpredictability stemming from the sharing of various hardware resources, such as caches, interconnects, and main memory. Consequently, accurate quantification of shared resource contention is essential to derive schedulability analysis. In his PhD, Jatin has mainly focused on bounding the contention suffered by tasks due to the sharing of memory bus, and DRAM-based memories. The results presented in the thesis significantly improve the accuracy of the schedulability analysis by tightening the bounds on memory bus and DRAM contention.
