Athavale uses mathematical techniques to solve problems in image processing, especially in physics and biomedical engineering.

Prior to his Clarkson appointment, Athavale was a lecturer in the Department of Mathematics at Johns Hopkins University, a Fields-Ontario Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Toronto and a postdoctoral scholar at UCLA.
