Salman Parsa

Welcome to my homepage!

I am Salman Parsa. I do research in the areas of Computer Science and Mathematics. I got my PhD at Computer Science, from Duke Univesity, Durham, NC, USA. My PhD advisor was Herbert Edelsbrunner.

I work mainly in Computational Geometry and Computational Topology. In these areas, one studies problems of geometry and topology from the computatoinal point of view. There are always two sides to a problem, namely, presenting an algorithm for efficiently (i.e. quickly) answering the problem, or, show that it cannot have such an algorithm.

I also work in Discrete and Combinatorial Geometry. Here, one is interested to understand the properties of objects in Euclidean spaces of various dimensions.
