My webpage at George Mason. (Jan 2007)

I am now a postdoc in the CITRIS Tele-Immersion lab at UC Berkeley, and, in January 2007, I will join the Department of Computer Science at the George Mason University. This page is no longer being maintained here. Here is my new webpage. (July 2006)

Lien, Jyh-Ming is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at Texas A&M University. He currently works in the Algorithms & Applications Group in Parasol Lab with Nancy Amato. Lien's research is in the areas of computational geometry, computer graphics, and robotics.
