CSAIL researcher Arvind has been elected as Foreign Fellow to the India National Academy of Sciences.

The Charles W. and Jennifer C. Johnson Professor in Computer Science, Arvind has contributed to the development of dynamic dataflow architectures, the implicitly-parallel programming languages Id and pH, and the compilation of these types of languages on parallel machines. R. S. Nikhil and Arvind published the book, "Implicit Parallel Programming in pH" in 2001.

In 2000, Arvind started Sandburst, a fabless semiconductor company to produce a chip set for 10G-bit Ethernet routers. Sandburst was acquired by Broadcom in 2006. In 2003, Arvind co-founded Bluespec Inc., an electronic-design automation company to produce a set of tools for high-level synthesis, and he now serves on its board.

Arvind's current research interests are in enabling rapid development of embedded systems using guarded-atomic actions and in memory models and cache-coherence protocols for parallel architectures and languages.
