In October I was co-author to the paper “Graded Infill Structure
of Wind Turbine Blade Accounting for Internal Stress in Big Area
Additive Manufacturing” presented at the The Composites and Advanced
Materials EXPO (CAMX) 2018.
In Summer 2018 I was part of a small team of researchers working
on problems related to Circle Packing and Rigidity Theory as part of
a Collaborate@ICERM
Program.
In December 2017 my paper with Philip Bowers and Kevin
Pratt, “Rigidity of circle polyhedra in the 2-sphere and of
hyperideal polyhedra in hyperbolic 3-space” was accepted to appear
in the Transactions of the American Mathematical
Society.
In November 2017 I gave a talk title “Cauchy’s theorem and
rigidity of circle polyhedra in the 2-sphere” at the Undergraduate
Mathematics Colloquium at Washington and Lee University.
In September 2017 my paper with Philip Bowers,
“Ma-Schlenker c-Octahedra in the 2-Sphere” appeared in the
Journal of Discrete and Computational Geometry.
In August 2017 my paper with Philip Bowers, “Menger
Redux: Embedding Metric Spaces Isometrically in Euclidean Space”,
appeared in the journal American Mathematical
Monthly.
In June 2017, I organized a workshop on Circle Packing, which is
hosted here at James Madison University (June 6-9).
In summer 2017 I worked with a student as part of our Research
Experience for Undergraduate’s (REU) program in computer science.
The student blog for the REU program can be found here.
In March 2017 I am co-organizing a special session of the AMS
southeastern sectional meeting in Charleston, SC. The title of the
session is “Rigidity
Theory and Circle Packing”.
In September 2016 I gave a talk at the Unusual Configuration
Spaces workshop at the Institute for Computational Experimental
Research in Mathematics at Brown University. Click here
to stream the video online.
In late June I gave a talk at the Automated
Deduction in Geometry workshop. The informal proceedings from
this workshop have been posted online here.
In early June I gave a talk at the Geometric rigidity
theory and applications workshop at the International Centre for
Mathematical Sciences in Edinburgh, UK. I talked about recent
results with Philip
Bowers on the rigidity properties of circle patterns on the
sphere.
In March my paper with Ileana Streinu, “Geodesic
Universal Molecules”, appeared in the journal Mathematics in
Computer Science.
