I am a Chancellor's Professor in the Computer Science Department of the University of California, Irvine.

My research (see selected publications) has covered many topics in computational geometry and graph algorithms, including:

  • Graph drawing and information visualization
  • Dynamic graph algorithms and dynamic closest pair data structures
  • Mesh generation and optimal triangulation
  • K-shortest paths and related combinatorial enumeration algorithms
  • Subgraph isomorphism and network statistics
  • Data depth and robust statistics
  • Exponential-time algorithms for NP-hard problems
  • Distance-preserving embeddings of graphs and metric spaces

I am also an avid photographer and have many photos in my web photo gallery.

This site is quite static; if you want more frequent updates (or to find out what's changed here) go to my blog or my Google+ account.

My name is not uncommon (although the spelling is atypical); see my page of Eppsteins on the net if you think you've reached the wrong me.
