# About Me

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Computer Science, Toronto Metropolitan University .
My main area of interest is computational geometry.
Particularly, I am interested in visibility graphs and unit disk graphs.

I am a member of Geometric Computing Lab.

# Research

My areas of interest

###### Conflict-free coloring of polygon visibility graphs

**Conflict-free coloring** of a simple graph is assigning colors to a subset of vertices such that every vertex in the graph sees a unique color. A polygon visibility graph is a graph that describes the visibility relations among the vertices of a given polygon.

###### Unit disk graph recognition on restricted domains

**Recognizing** of a unit disk graph is determining whether a given simple graph can be realized as an intersection graph of unit disks.
A **restricted domain** is a pre-determined solution space in which the disks are allowed to be centered.

###### Maximum clique of a disk set

A **clique** is a set of disks where each disk mutually intersect. The aim is to find such a set with maximum cardinality. It is not yet known whether this problem is tractable.
