Research Interests:
  • Computational Geometrys
  • Algorithms and Optimization
  • Bio-Medical Computing
Statement of Research:
My main research interests are in the areas of geometric computing, bio-medical computing, parallel (multicore, GPU) computing, and intelligent transportation systems. I am particularly interested in developing computationally efficient algorithms for optimization problems. Some of the emerging computational fields, such as computational medicine and intelligent transportation are dealing with problems that can make use of geometric and graph optimization techniques. My research aims to bring computational geometry and geometric optimization methods to the forefront of other computational fields.
