I'm interested in topics at the intersection of computation and mathematics. This has drawn me to projects of this flavor, recently centered around geometry processing, computational topology, physicsbased simulation, linear algebra and optimization. Some recent projects include: fast distributed spatial queries, a parallel solver for elliptic partial differential equations, Bezier and spline algorithms, robust collision handling polynomial optimization, and optimal distance algorithms in the curve graph. I'm also interested in reproducibility and good engineering practices in computational science.
