I am interested in the study of the finiteness of the different cones that can be associated to a smooth projective variety as well as its Cox ring, and the behavior of these objects under blow­ups, specially for rational varieties. In the case that the answer of finiteness is positive, I am interested in determine explicitly the minimal generating set for the cones and the generators and relations for the Cox ring. Also, I am interested in applications of Algebraic Geometry to Coding Theory.

The core of my recent work is on analysis of metric spaces. This involves studying notions of connectivity, Poincare inequalities and differentiation in metric spaces. Aside from this mathematical work, I have engaged in work on computational geometry including path planning problems.

My research focuses on two main topics: discrete volumes and geometric dynamical systems. On discrete volumes, I have been using methods of Fourier analysis to study lattice-point counting functions of polytopes. On geometric dynamical systems, I have been writing computer programs to simulate, to visualize and to prove new results about polygon iterations. The workshop happens to cover many subjects and techniques that are very close to my research interests. Therefore, I strongly believe that my research experience will allow me to actively learn from and contribute to the workshop.

We have started to study convex polytopes, in particular their Schlegeldiagramms, models and realization spaces in order to treat a number of open problems in this area. We expect to eventually produce interesting construction procedures with an emphasis on developing computer based models for the visualization of 4-polytopes.

My field of research is computational geometry. In particular, I have been focusing on studying and developing geometric algorithms for uncertain data. Instead of having a fixed location (and/or weights) for our data points, we instead assume that their values come from some distribution, continuous or discrete. The addition of uncertainty adds many interesting questions we can ask: for example instead of searching for the nearest neighbor, we might want the most likely nearest neighbor, or instead try to compute various statistics on the nearest neighbor. Previously I have also worked on computational topology, using persistent homology to attempt to improve predictions of "interesting" chemical reactions on a high dimensional data.

I am a 2nd year Computer Science PhD student at the University of Iowa, and my advisor is Prof. Kasturi Varadarajan. I am broadly interested in the field of Geometric Approximation Algorithms, and Computational Geometry in general. More specifically, I have worked on some versions of Geometric Set Cover such as multi-covering and capacitated covering in metric spaces, using techniques such as LP Rounding. In the future, I would like to explore the area of covering and clustering by studying variants of these problems.

I am a 4th year PhD candidate in The University of Iowa working in Geometric approximation under the profound guidance of Prof. Kasturi Varadarajan. I mainly study various NP-hard problems of geometric flavour and try to achieve near optimal solution in polynomial time. The main challenge in my work is to give a theoretical approximation bound on the quality of the solution. During these years of my PhD I have learnt many techniques and frameworks like Separator schemes, Local search, Graph partitioning, LP rounding. I have worked on Geometric Clustering, Covering and Hitting problems, and plan to explore these areas more deeply in future. I have published work in leading theory conferences and journals (SODA, SoCG, ISAAC, TCS etc.). I am on the verge of completion of my PhD. The topics of the workshops of the spring school are very relevant to my research and I believe by attending the lectures I can learn stuff that will have great impact in my future research.

I am interested in designing approximation algorithms for problems that arise in the Euclidean setting. More generally, in using the structure of geometric instances to design more efficient approximation algorithms for classic (graph theoretic) problems. A big part of my research is focused on variants of TSP, such as TSP with neighborhoods and Max Scatter TSP, specifically in improving the constants in existing approx algs or in designing poly-time algorithms for problems that do not yet have ones. In addition, I've been working on the graph diameter problem and on getting truly subquadratic algorithms for geometric instances. I am also interested in variants of the shortest path problem and extending existing work to higher dimensions.
