Mohamed Ebeida – PI / Technical Lead
Mohamed Ebeida is an expert in computational geometry related to Voronoi diagrams, hyperplane sampling and sphere packing. He is the lead of several Voronoi-based projects at Sandia National Laboratories with application to meshing, high-dimensional sampling, uncertainty quantification, and optimization. He graduated from University of California Davis in 2008 with a PhD in Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering and a Masters in Applied Mathematics. He worked for two years as a Postdoc at Carnegie Mellon University. In 2010, he joined Sandia National Laboratories where he actively works in exploring the potential of Voronoi decompositions for a wide range on non-traditional applications.
