Professional
I am currently the Associate Head for the Graduate Program and
Director of Graduate Studies for the Mathematics
Graduate Program at UA.
Here is my long CV.
Research
My research is concerned with geometry and geometric flows. This
includes work on Ricci flow, discrete versions of the heat equation,
curve shortening flow, and discrete Riemannian manifolds. I am also
interested in Delaunay triangulations and their generalizations. If
you are interested, I have been working on an introduction to my
work intended for the nonmathematician. It is still a work in
progress and still in its early stages. (In fact, it is really just
a summary of some geometry right now, and possibly outdated.) Please
let me know if and when you find mistakes.
You may find links to my research papers at ArXiv
and MathSciNet.

Proofs, and Patterns: Experience the World of Mathematics,

Tucson, AZ that I spearheaded through my NSF grant.
I run the Geometric

On
Computational
Abstract Manifolds (GEOCAM) project
During summer 2010, I ran the Arizona Summer
Program, a research program for undergraduates sponsored by
UA's VIGRE grant.
