Prior to joining EE, Visvesh was a member of technical staff in the Low-Power Advanced Development Group at AMD, developing new technologies for energy-efficient computing. Visvesh led the research and development effort at AMD that resulted in the first ever resonant clocked commercial microprocessor. Several of his other inventions have been adopted for use in future-generation microprocessors. His current research interests include next-generation clocking circuits and architectures, integrated voltage regulation, ultralow voltage design, and self-optimizing systems. In the past, he has conducted research in the areas of adiabatic computing, adaptive circuit design, and power supply distribution and conversion.

Visvesh has authored over 20 publications and holds six patents, with several others pending. His doctoral thesis was selected as the best dissertation in EECS for 2007 and was nominated for the Rackham Graduate School Distinguished Dissertation Award at the University of Michigan. He is a member of the Technical Program Committees of the Custom Integrated Circuits Conference, and the International Conference on VLSI Design.
