I work in the Meshing & Geometry Abstraction group (Digital Simulation Solutions) @ SIEMENS PLM Software in Cincinnati, OH. The main area of my activity today spans finite element mesh generation techniques like surface and solid mesh generation, geometry idealization for meshing, meshing on tessellated geometry, parametric meshing, tetrahedral meshing process engineering, hexahedral-to- tetrahedral interface development, transfinite meshing and sweep mesh generation etc.

A glimpse of my mesh generation work is listed below:
