I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech.
From 2001 to 2003, I was a Senior Research Associate in the Bioinformatics Program at Boston University, where I worked with Simon Kasif.
Before joining Boston University, I worked at Compaq's Cambridge Research Lab.
Till July 1999, I was a post-doc in the Computer Science Department at Stanford University. I worked with Leo Guibas and Jean-Claude Latombe on problems arising in computational geometry, computer graphics, and robotics. In particular, I worked on the Tactical Mobile Robots project.
Before I came to Stanford, I was a Ph.D. student at the Department of Computer Science at Brown University. For July 1993 to August 1998, I was a visiting scholar at the Department of Computer Science at Duke University, where my advisor Jeff Vitter is the Chairman. I was a member of the Center for Geometric Computing at Duke.
Before I started my graduate studies at Brown in 1991, I spent four years at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IITM) getting a Bachelor of Technology degree in Computer Science and Engineering. My last two years in high school were spent at the pride of Luz Circle, Vidya Mandir, Madras.
In my research, I focus on problems in computational geometry, especially those motivated by applications in computer graphics, robotics, and geographic information systems. In my Ph.D. thesis, I studied the problem of hidden-surface removal.
- At Stanford, I am involved in a project on Tactical Mobile Robots.
- Here is a list of my publications, all of which you can download.
- Here is my resume.
- If you want to know more about computational geometry, Jeff Erickson and David Eppstein maintain excellent pages.
- If you would like to know more about theoretical computer science, the pages to look at are the ACM SIGACT home page and Suresh Venkatasubramanian's page.
