Dr. Karve is a research assistant professor in the Risk, Reliability, and Resilience in engineering group. His research involves probabilistic diagnosis, probabilistic prognosis and optimization under uncertainty for engineering systems using physics-based and/or data-driven models for these systems.

The applications that drive his work are in structural engineering (structural health monitoring, design of blast-hardened buildings), geophysics (full-waveform inversion), petroleum engineering (wave-based enhanced oil recovery), biomedical imaging (kidney stone detection and sizing), aerospace engineering (damage-adaptive rotorcraft maneuvering), composites manufacturing (real-time cure monitoring), and electrical engineering (optimal electrical power grid operations).
