I defended my PhD in July, 2018. You can read my PhD dissertation here, or go over my defense slides here. I am fortunate to have had Pankaj as my advisor.
My interests include theoretical computer science, specifically computational geometry, topology, and its applications in areas such as databases, data mining, GIS, and trajectory data analysis. Most of my work deals with processing big, geometric data sets in two ways - developing provably-efficient algorithms for big data platforms such as MapReduce, and efficiently constructing/working with succinct descriptors of large data sets that capture the relevant geometric and topological properties of the data.
