I’m an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science at University of Arizona.
I’m a member of UA’s HDC Lab.

I work with an awesome research group: Tanner Finken (PhD CS), Md Afridi Hasan (MS CS), and Jake Balla (BS CS). Alumni of my group.

I used to profess at Clemson University. I am a postdoctoral alumnus of University of Utah’s Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute having worked with Valerio Pascucci and Ross T. Whitaker. I did my PhD at the Ohio State University with Tamal K. Dey and my undergraduate and MS at Case Western Reserve University with Michael S. Branicky.

My short bio, google scholar, dblp, and cv.

I research visualization and (less so these days) geometric modeling.
Along the way, I use topological analysis, high-performance computing, and computer graphics.
I write code for my research, including contributions to TTK, Cleaver, DelPSC, and DelIso.

I am chair of the Department of CS Diversity, Equity, and Inclusive (DEI) Committee.
