I am an Associate Professor at the Computer Science Department at the University of Arizona. I won the NSF CAREER award (2004), to work on "Pattern Matching, Realistic Input Models and Sensor Placement. Useful Algorithms in Computational Geometry." I am on the editorial board of IJCGA and of Transactions on Algorithms Engineering. I was a program committee member of SoCG05, SoCG13, Broadnets06, 07, 08, 09, ICC WAS ACM GIS 07, 08, 09, 11,12, 13, ALGOSENSORS 08 ALGOSENSORS 11 FOCS 09, INFOCOM 09 and 10 and 11. I am co-chair of the track on sensor network algorithms, ALGOSENSORS 14 and one of the organizers of a workshop on Geometric Optimization in Wireless Communication and Sensing, in conjunction with SoCG 14. I am on the TPC of the International Joint Conference on Computer Vision, Imaging and Computer Graphics Theory and Applications. VISIGRAPP.
