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, geometric flows, and data science. This
includes work on Ricci flow, discrete versions of the heat equation,
curve shortening flow, discrete Riemannian manifolds, graph theory drawing, and deep neural networks.
Some of my recent collaborative projects are:
I was a coeditor of a Special Issue on Mathematical Fundamentals of Machine Learning in Frontiers in Applied Mathematics and Statistics.
Here is a layman's introduction to geometry intended for the nonmathematician (this is an old project that may be partly outdated.
You may find links to my research papers at ArXiv, MathSciNet, Google Scholar, and Scopus. NSF grants can be found here
I conceived and codesigned Puzzles,
Proofs, and Patterns: Experience the World of Mathematics,
an exhibit at the Flandrau Science Center in
Tucson, AZ that I spearheaded through my NSF grant.
I run the Geometric
Evolutions
On
Computational
Abstract Manifolds (GEOCAM) project (site not uptodate)
During summer 2010, I ran the Arizona Summer
Program, a research program for undergraduates sponsored by
UA's VIGRE grant.
