My research is in computational geometry, data structures, geometric optimization, and discrete algorithms. My recent work includes theoretical results in geometric covering, local geometric routing, range searching, polygon reconstruction, graph drawing, online algorithms, geometric models for wireless communication, kinetic data structures, geometric depth measures, and facility location. I am also interested graph theory, computational complexity, combinatorial algorithms, combinatorial geometry, and discrete mathematics. See my research projects, my publications, or the lab for more information.

I have funding available for graduate students interested in pursuing a M.Sc. or Ph.D. on a thesis topic related to my research expertise. A list of students and postdoctoral fellows working with me can be found here.

I have served on program committees for LATIN 2010, CCCG 2010 (conference co-chair), CCCG 2011, WALCOM 2012, COCOA 2012, CCCG 2015, ALGOSENSORS 2015, CCCG 2016, WADS 2017, GD 2017, and the SoCG YRF 2017, and as a guest editor for the journal Computational Geometry: Theory and Applications.

personal interests

I enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, including climbing, mountaineering, backpacking, backcountry skiing, cycling, canoeing, and photography. These pages include trip reports and a list of peaks summited. Recently I have attempted woodworking. See photos of my family.
