He has over 30 years of experience in software engineering. He is currently Senior Research Scientist at the Institute for Software Integrated Systems (ISIS), which is housed in the School of Engineering and internationally recognized for its impact on the science and technology of integrating computers with physical systems.

Karsai conducts research in the design and implementation of embedded systems, in programming tools for visual programming environments, in the theory and practice of model-integrated computing, and in resource management and scheduling systems. He has also managed several large research projects on model-based integration of embedded systems, model-based toolchains, fault-adaptive control technology, and coordinated scheduling and planning.
