Kasi Periyasamy

Dr. Kasi Periyasamy has been teaching at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, La Crosse, Wisconsin, since 1999.He was also a faculty member in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada from 1991 - 1999.

Education

He received his Bachelor's degree in Electronics and Communications (with Honors) in 1981 from University of Madras and a Masters degree in Computer Science in 1983 from Anna University. Both these universities are located in Madras, now called as "Chennai", in the state of Tamilnadu in South India. Later in 1987 he received another Masters degree and in 1991 a Ph.D. in Computer Science, both from Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Research Interests

His current research interests are primarily focused on
*Formal Methods,
*Object-Oriented Analysis, Design and Programming,
*Software reuse and re-engineering, and
*Software Architectures

His doctoral thesis was on developing formal specifications for robotic applications.
