Paul is a PhD student in electrical engineering and computer science. His research is focused on developing high-quality meshes that are typically required to solve complicated partial differential equations numerically. He currently uses MATLAB to prototype frame field algorithms and to study their application to hexahedral meshing. More specifically, he uses MATLAB’s symbolic differentiation to derive vector calculus expressions and to create concise yet massively vectorized implementations of geometry processing algorithms like frame field combing. He also uses the MATLAB based rendering tool hexygen/SPRender for easy visualization and evaluation of the resulting frame fields. He earned his BS in computer science from California Institute of Technology.
