I am interested in questions about data structures, algorithms, combinatorics, and algorithmic geometry. My papers (pdf downloads, slides, etc.) can be found on my personal website.

Selected publications (see here for full list and downloads):

Advised students (current and past)

Titles/abstracts and completed theses (where available) can be accessed through the group websites: master | bachelor

Some potentially useful tips for tcs and math research and writing (R O'Donnell), talks (K Fatahalian), and research in general (DP Stern).
