■ Professional Achievements
● Other Special Instructions related to the Current Position
1. The main research area is Mathematical Engineering. Mathematical Engineering is a discipline for establishing mathematical methods to solve real-world problems. In this context, my main concern is development of geometric methods for real problems, which includes computational geometry, computer graphics, computer vision, geographic information processing, robot-motion planning, computer-supported art, and computational illusion. Particularly, I am devoted to super-robust geometric computation, which aims at numerically stable algorithms for solving geometric problems.
