My main research interests span the multidisciplinary areas of applied electromagnetics from RF and microwaves to terahertz and infrared frequencies, metamaterials/metasurfaces, novel 2D materials, nonlinear phenomena, antennas, and numerical techniques, among other emerging topics in plasmonics and nanophotonics. In particular, I am especially interested in the efficient control and manipulation of electromagnetic waves in unprecedented ways, aiming to overcome the limitations of current technology and communication systems in terms of dynamic reconfiguration, integration and miniaturization while simultaneously boosting their performance and functionalities.
My primary research efforts are driven by practical environmental problems facing land and resource managers and discovery of the underlying processes affecting derivation of development of applicable methods or solutions to these problems. My focus remains largely directed at gaining a better understanding of hillslope hydrology, wetland and irrigation/drainage processes in the field.

Efficiency of algorithms, particularly for problems in combinatorial optimization and graph theory. These algorithms have been applied to study data and computer security, stable matching, network flow, matroid optimization, and string/pattern matching problems. Currently, Professor Gusfield is focused on string and combinatorial problems that arise in computational biology, particularly involving bioinformatics and genomics.
Development of accurate numerical simulation methods for applications in computational materials science, as well as computational physics and chemistry. He is involved in the development of algorithms for First-Principles Molecular Dynamics, a simulation method that combines a calculation of atomic trajectories with a quantum mechanical description of electronic properties. This method is widely used to explore the properties of solids, liquids, nanoparticles and biomolecules. First-principles simulations are computationally expensive and require the use of large parallel computers. The integration of efficient parallel numerical algorithms in simulation codes is an important part of his research.
