Welcome to my home page. I am an assistant Professor in the Computer Science department at the University of Memphis , TN. Prior to this position, I was a postdoctoral research scholar in the Center for Geometric Computing at the University of California, in the breath-takingly beautiful city Santa Barbara where my mentor was Prof. Subhash Suri . Even before that, I was a Ph.D. student at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign where my advisor was Prof. Sariel Har-Peled.


Research

I am interested generally in Theoretical Computer Science. More specifically I do work in computational and discrete geometry, approximation algorithms, combinatorial optimization, combinatorics and probability.
