Much of my past research has been in computational geometry, particularly robustness of geometric algorithms. For several years I worked on the WISE project, which uses geometric algorithms to predict radio propagation in indoor and outdoor environments. Other work includes a particularly efficient algorithm for approximating the roots of ill-conditioned, high-degree polynomials. More recent work includes the algorithmic innards of design tools for state-of-the-art optical networks.
