Research Interests
Description: 

My research career started in mathematics, with geometry and combinatorics; since then I have studied problems from very diverse topics, including things like quantum logics and digital halftoning. I am now interested in topics that touch algorithms and geometry, like computational geometry, sensor networks, and robotics
