Dey recognized as ACM Fellow

The Association of Computing Machinery will recognize TDAI affiliate Tamal Dey (computer science and engineering) as one of its 2018 fellows at a June 15 banquet in San Francisco. ACM, the world’s largest scientific and educational computing society, awards the honor to computer scientists worldwide “for contributions to computational geometry and computational topology.”

“In society, when we identify our tech leaders, we often think of men and women in industry who have made technologies pervasive while building major corporations,” said ACM President Cherri M. Pancake. “At the same time, the dedication, collaborative spirit and creativity of the computing professionals who initially conceived and developed these technologies goes unsung. The ACM Fellows program publicly recognizes the people who made key contributions to the technologies we enjoy. Even when their work did not directly result in a specific technology, they have made major theoretical contributions that have advanced the science of computing. We are honored to add a new class of Fellows to ACM’s ranks and we look forward to the guidance and counsel they will provide to our organization.”

Dey, a professor of computer science at Ohio State, co-leads TDAI’s Foundations in Data Science community of practice and the NSF-funded TGDA@OSU TRIPODS team at Ohio State. His primary research area is computational geometry and topology, with applications to shape and data analysis. He has authored several highly cited papers in this area, including two books: Curve and Surface Reconstruction: Algorithms with Mathematical Analysis (Cambridge U. Press) and Delaunay Mesh Generation (CRC Press).
