Geometric Computing and Applications
speaking, geometric computing is concerned with the
design of efficient computational techniques for representing,
reasoning with, and manipulating geometric entities. My
research here encompasses algorithm and data
structure design and analysis, software development, and deployment of
solutions into applications.
Application areas of current interest include computer-aided
design and manufacture, spatial query processing,
biomedical engineering, and protein structure
analysis. To get a flavor for
this, you can check out some of my recent work on layered

In Fall 2018,
I am teaching a
graduate course on advanced algorithms and data structures (CSci 5421).
In Spring 2019, I will be teaching
an undergraduate honors course on discrete methods (CSci 2011H)
and a graduate course on computational
geometry (CSci 8442).
