My research interests lie in the development of practical operations on geometric models and their application to challenging problems in areas such as haptics, computer-aided modeling, robotics, and human-computer interfaces. I strongly believe that interdisciplinary collaboration motivates theoretical developments in computer science, as well satisfying solutions to real-world problems.

Similarly, teaching and outreach activities create venues for finding new applications for computational tools and for developing the relationships to explore them. These activities are intrinsically tied to the research process.
