Tulane University, New Orleans, US.

I am Majid Mirzanezhad, a Ph.D. candidate at Tulane University, Department of Computer Science. My main research area lies in Computational Geometry, Algorithms and Data Structure. More specifically, I am working on geometric data structures for uncertain curves and graph simplification. My adviser is Dr. Carola Wenk.

Research Interests: Computational Geometry - Geographic Information system (GIS) - Algorithm and Data Structure -Theoretical Computer Science - Artificial Intelligence.
