He also was a postdoctoral research fellow at IBM research in 1983, Member of Technical Staff and fellow at Mathematical Sciences Research Centre,  AT&T Bell laboratories, professor of mathematics at MIT in 1991, at institute for advanced study Princeton in 1996 and Homi Bhabha chair professor at the Tata institute of fundamental Research in Mumbai from 1998 to 2005. He also was funded by ratan Tata to create computational research Labs in Pune and also the scientific advisor to the chairman of the TATA group.


Karmarkar's algorithm
Karamarkar's algorithm solve linear programming in polynomial time.
Galois geometry
After working on the Interior Point Method, he worked on a new architecture for supercomputing, based on concept from finite geometry, especially projective geometry over finite fields.
Current investigations
currently, he is synthesizing this concept with some new ideas because sculpturing free space.
This approach allows him to extend this work to the physical designs of machines.he is not publishing updates on his recent work, including an extending abstract.
