Biography

I am a research professor at NYU Polytechnic Institute. I recently completed my post-doctoral work from the SCI Institute at the University of Utah where I was involved in collaborative projects involving scientific visualization and geometry processing problems. I received my PhD from the University of Utah working on semi-regular, quad-only mesh generation.
