TTK Release!!!

Date: April 01, 2017

We are excited to announce the release of the Topology Tool Kit (TTK), an open source library and software collection for topological data analysis in scientific visualization:

TTK can handle scalar data defined either on regular grids or triangulations, either in 2D or in 3D. It provides a...

Work in progress

Date: January 06, 2017

Welcome to my new homepage!

As you can see, this website is still a work-in-progress. Please feel free to email me if you see a mistake.

I will slowly be importing all of my old information, as well as adding new material, over the course of the next few months.
