  Welcome to the Applied Geometry Lab webpage!

The Applied Geometry Lab at Caltech is located in Pasadena, California. We approach computations from a geometric standpoint in order to provide numerical tools that intrinsically respect key defining properties like symmetries and invariants. In particular, we focus on discrete differential modeling, i.e., the development of differential, yet readily-discretizable foundations of computations, with a wide spectrum of applications from discrete geometry processing to solid and fluid mechanics.

We work in close collaboration with Professor Yiying Tong's GiG group from MSU, Dr Pierre Alliez's TITANE group from Inria, Professor Eva Kanso's group from USC, and Peter Schröder's Caltech Multires Modeling Group. .

Our research is sponsored in large part by the National Science Foundation (CAREER, CARGO, CMMI, CPA G&V, ITR, EAGER, and ERC grants), the Department of Energy, the Okawa Foundation, and by gifts from HTC, Pixar Animation Studios, Intel, and Microsoft.
